Getting up early and enjoying the sunrise while paddling is one of the most relaxing things you can do. It is an hour of pure relaxation while being active! It keeps you in the present, because you can’t afford it to lose your focus.

A fun activity with family and friends

However stand up paddling doesn’t have to be all about relaxation and meditation. It’s a perfect activity to do with friends and family. It is enjoyable and a fun way to have a nice day out on the water. It may look as simple as standing up but somebody will have an unexpected splash which makes it even funnier.

You can even compete against each other and have fun competitions on who’s the fastest paddler without falling off. Fun guaranteed!

A killer workout

Forget about running, going to the gym or doing a hike. Paddling is an amazing workout and it requires a lot of effort to stay balanced. It’s a good way to train all those small muscles that keep you on your feet. While doing an hour of paddling you can burn up to 500 calories!
