What is Paddle Boarding?

Paddleboarding is a water sport where participants are propelled by moving their arms in a swimming motion while lying, standing, or kneeling on a paddleboard or surfboard.

Paddleboarding has become increasingly popular over the last few years, and for a good reason. It is a highly enthralling sport that is suitable for all ages and levels of athleticism. Paddlers can choose to lay flat on the board, paddling with their arms, or stand-up or kneel. Regardless of the method, paddleboarding is a great sport for all.

If you are a fervent fan of water sports, there are plenty of health reasons for taking up paddle boarding. Five benefits of paddle boarding include:

  • Improved balance. Standup paddle boarding requires core stability and strength in the legs to avoid falling over. As a result, this exercise increases focus on other activities such as studying or working.
  • Full body workout. People who are keen to maintain a healthy exercise regimen will benefit from regular paddle boarding. This sport engages the arms, legs, back, and shoulder muscles to maintain balance and hence, well-toned muscles.
  • Boosting strength. After paddle boarding for a few hours, you will feel soreness throughout the body, but this is a great sign. The more you paddle, the more your muscles will endure, and exhaustion will become a thing of the past.
  • Curbs stress. Water has a therapeutic effect on the mind and body as one glides through and upholds their stroking rhythm. Eventually, the stress starts to dissipate, and your mind is free from whatever was stealing your joy.
  • Summer glow. Paddle boarding is an excellent activity to help you maintain a healthy summer glow. A few hours in the sun gives you the much-needed boost of Vitamin D. Be sure, though, to use sunscreen so an unwanted sunburn does not rob you of your fun in the sun.
