Re: Stand Up Paddleboarding, Who works out on one ?

Up in Bellingham there is a crabber that uses a SUP.

Re: Stand Up Paddleboarding, Who works out on one ?

Depends what you are after. I have had an old model Laird Ron House 10' x 27" on board since January and am addicted. The boards surfs well but is too long to win serious comps. Then it paddles well, but won't keep up to race boards. In the end it is a compromise that I enjoy.

Soon I am going to have to get an 8'4" for surf comps, but seriously I would not call this at all a decent all-round board for the boat. Likewise, I could paddle harder on a 12'6" or 14" race board, but they are not made for surfing. Maybe I need a bigger boat?

Oh, I should mention that SUP s are one of the best all-round workouts out there. You use everything from your neck to your toes with a concentration on core support and balance. No wonder I am addicted!

If you get a reputable brand like C4 or Starboard you won't have many problems. The biggest thing is to inflate them to the correct pressure. Under inflated they are like trying to stand on a water bed.

This is typical on any SUP. You are conditioning all those little balancing muscles you might not have known you had. I bet it makes walking the deck in seas easier?

I consciously wiggle my "off " foot on easy strokes. On jaunts of more than an hour I get foot cramping otherwise.

I know after not missing a day paddling in 4 months at 62 I have gained lots of muscles, and my wife says I look better and find balancing and walking on deck of my sailboat out sailing much easier like I was 25 again. Luckily I had my old sea kayaking wetsuit stuff so I plan on SUPing all year round.

The use of some type of self draining water shoes with a good arch support helps lots, this advice was given to me by a SUP board shaper.

Hmm, interesting. I love the barefoot / bare gear aspect. Trunks, paddle, hat, and go.

When I first got mine I was ridding it constantly and lost 6 kg whilst tonning up.

For good quality well priced long john paddle suits check out an American company called NRS.

I just find they hit me out of the blue after I have been off the sup for a while, especially in choppy surf. Again, the positive side is that you are working these muscles which might have been ignored in other paddle sports.

I have NRS Hydroskin wetsuit gear from my kayaking days and I layer when it gets colder great stuff. Our weather turns to snow tomorrow so I'll layer

I was out in some nasty chop yesterday down here in Bahia details todos los santos. Definitely a rare thing out here. People are looking at me like I'm a spaceman.

So is there consensus on best inflatable SUP? starboard or c2, or whatever surfer Shane mentioned? I think it will add something really nice for my wife, who just doesn't want to run the dink or outboard. Being on a year round mooring, i'm Always looking to simplify getting back and forth for light duty trips, short of swimming. The exercise sounds awesome, and we all know how much exercise helps when stuck on a boat with no convenient places to walk, run or bike.

Very excited to add to our program, my friend days he can get me a pro deal.
