Stand-up paddle boards have been getting their fair share of coverage over the past week. Kevin Helliker from the Wall Street Journal wrote a great article last week about the benefits of stand-up paddle boarding and Jasmeet Sidhu of The Toronto Star wrote about the sport’s gain in popularity
Scott and I have been out in several locations around Ontario – from calm to rough water to riding waves behind a boat – to test out the boards and I admit we have become a wee bit obsessed.
Worth the investment because…
- Great total body workout
- Improves balance
- Strengthens muscles of legs, butt, back, shoulders and arms
- Low impact
- Positive mental benefits – relaxing, de-stressing, calming
- Social if you go out with a friend
- Any age group can do it
- No waves needed!
