We Canucks are lucky, because our access to incredible National Parks with perfect water is some of the best on the planet. We have lakes, rivers and oceans right at our doorsteps. This is big reason stand up paddle boarding is so huge here. Yes, we are lucky, indeed!
But, let’s face it, too many of us don’t get outside enough. We work inside, watch movies inside, stare at our phones at cafes, and basically, sit around inside. Not to knock our awesome techy society but we all know life is better outside.
So if you haven’t tried SUP as a great way to get outside and do your body some good, our team at iROCKER is here to introduce you this fabulous sport.
Hello there. Meet Stand Up Paddle Boarding.
Stand up paddle boarding offers at least a trillion awesome benefits, but who’s counting? The fact is, it’s low-impact, strengthening, healthy and zero calorie. It also has the distinct benefit of glorious scenery, so most people love it at first try.
If SUP sounds like something you need to try (and we certainly think you should), then keep reading.
Benefits of iSUP
iROCKERs are inflatable stand up paddle boards. This makes them easy to store and carry. For newbies and vets alike, this easy-breezy mobility completely eliminates any hassle factor.
Then there’s the beauty of SUP. When you’re on your board, you’ll see nature all around you. The water below, the birds above, the fish, flora and fauna, and all of the ahh-mazing natural beauty Canada has to offer. It’s like you’re the subject of a Janet Cardiff painting, really.
Next, there’s the feeling of SUP. A little breeze in your hair, a light spray of water. A tiny burn in your legs and core, warm sunlight on your face. Yeah, SUP feels marvelous.
SUP is fun, too. It’s a workout, yes. But it’s also a social activity, a meditative zen retreat, or the best way to explore uncharted waterways.
SUP-ing lets you relax and forget about stress for a bit. It lets you disconnect from the negative and tune into the positive.
SUP-ing strengthens your whole mind, body and soul with a low impact workout. It might be a bit of a challenge at first (you have to find your balance). It might feel awkward at first (but most new things feel that way). And soon, after some practice, you’ll find the fun in your new water sport. We promise. SUP-ing can be addictive (in a good way), like poutine.
Now that you and SUP-ing have met, it is time for you to go out on that first paddle. All you need to do is find water, inflate your board and paddle out. Check out this link, where you can find answers to newbie questions.
