Like surfing, stand-up paddleboarding is a lifestyle that really appeals to people. Stand-up paddleboarding has an adrenaline rush, feels at one with nature as you paddle before sunset, and once you start walking on water where people don’t normally “walk,” you’ll gain unique prospects, as well as the adventure and camaraderie of exploring new places with new people in a new sport. Sitting on a stand-up paddleboard: that’s one thing. Don’t be fooled by the labels — standing paddleboards are great for sitting down. In fact, it’s very common! Plus, sitting on a paddleboard is still a great workout. Of course, it can also be a simple picnic paddle. Your choice.
SUP paddle position when it comes to SUP paddle posture, you can stand, kneel, or sit — whatever is most comfortable for you. Whatever you choose, your ISLE paddle board is equipped for your comfort. We have an EVA traction pad in the center of each board. This soft fleeced EVA is abrasion-free and provides extra traction to your feet, knees, or back while making it easier to change position when out of the water. Whether you choose to stand, kneel or sit, you are sure to enjoy a comfortable ride. Seated paddling options include sitting with your legs crossed or on your knees. Sitting with your legs crossed provides the lowest center of gravity and the easiest way to maintain balance while sitting on your knees provides more leverage and an easier transition to knee paddling. Choose your preferred sitting position and start rowing! Boating around your favorite waters is a great way to get your body moving and get some space from our screen-centered lives. Physical exercise and mental rest are a winning combination. To maximize your single-paddle surfing experience, we strongly recommend that you take enough time to relax with your feet hanging off the board. It’s a good way to take a break from the paddle and calm down, plus the gentle swaying of the water is ultimately calming.
Adjust your sitting position you find that you prefer to paddle on a surfboard, you can simply upgrade the iSUP settings: the basic Coleman stadium chair. Doesn’t it look too easy? For less than $20, you can support your back with longer oars. If you are using the ISLE Explorer iSUP, you will find that it comes standard with a D-ring to connect your temporary paddle seat. If you choose a different board model, don’t worry, as the D-ring can also be purchased and installed on other board models. Expand your paddling possibilities by trying to sit. Pack a picnic and plan to stay on the water to enjoy a particularly quiet paddle. But the most important thing is to get out of the water as much as possible. This is essential. SUP is very easy to learn sport suitable for all ages. Isn’t it fun? Different people have different opinions. I think it’s cool. Why don’t you try?
