SUP your way to fitness

Stand up paddle boarding (SUP) has become increasingly popular over the last few years as an alternative to surfing. If done correctly it can be a whole body workout really focusing on the core muscles. Standing on a long board, balancing and stabilizing yourself and then pulling your weight through the water can be a tough process, especially when battling against the current and wind. SUP is a great way to release tension, clear your head, have a fun workout and be outdoors all at the same time.
