Q&A on Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP)

Paddleboarding
WHAT IS PADDLE BOARDING?

Stand up paddle boarding, also known as SUP, is a popular water sport activity that involves standing up on a board and using a paddle to make your way through the water. You'll use your arms while standing or kneeling to propel you and your board forward.

Although SUP is similar to surfing and kayaking, you can use a paddle board for a myriad of activities such as surfing, adventuring, touring, fishing, yoga, racing, whitewater and more!

Benefits
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

Stand up paddleboarding is good for your body and soul. It's a low-impact activity that exercises your whole body and develops your overall fitness. It can especially help to strengthen your core and improve your overall balance.

Paddle boarding also allows you to practise mindfulness by enjoying your surroundings in the calm environment of the water, which research has shown can help to clear your mind and reduce stress.

Difficult
IS PADDLE BOARDING DIFFICULT?

Paddle boarding is easier than you might think! Most people can pick up the basics of how to paddle board within a lesson.

Once you grasp balancing and basic paddle strokes, you’ve learned enough to have a good time. So don’t be afraid to give it a try - or, if you’re more experienced, to invite a SUP beginner pal along for the ride. They’ll look like pros in no time!

Licence
DO I NEED A LICENCE?
You need a licence to paddle on Canal & River Trust and Environment Agency waterways, including the Norfolk Broads. Most of the waterways which require a licence to paddle on are covered in British Canoeing or Canal & River Trust membership.
Fit
DO I NEED TO BE FIT?

The beauty of stand-up paddleboarding is that anyone of any age or fitness can give it a go. The hardest part is learning how to stand up, but once you have mastered this technique, you can very much take it at your own pace.

SUP Stand-Up Paddleboarding
SUP IS FOR EVERYONE!
SUP is easy to learn at any age, fitness level, or walk of life. Young kids and grandparents alike, as well as people of every shape and size, will have a blast on a paddle board.
