How To Prepare?
When you’re out Stand-up paddling, your legs are just as important as the rest of your body. In order to be agile and quick on your feet, it’s essential to keep them stretched and toned.
Drink plenty of water: SUP can be dehydrating, so it’s important to drink lots of water.
Eat healthy snacks: Bring along some healthy snacks like fruits and nuts to keep your energy up.
Take breaks: If you’re feeling tired, take a break. It’s better to paddle for a shorter time at a leisurely pace than to push yourself too hard and end up exhausted.
