Paddling has become one of the fastest-growing and popular outdoor activities. This paddling can build up your arms and abs and burn up to 320 calories per hour to stroke the paddle.
If you are close to an ocean, lake, river, or pond, you can get your water sport on. In the last few years, kayaking continues to increase, but stand-up paddleboarding is expanding too. People have flocked to do that form of fun. Many rental locations can help you get everything you need to try these sports, including life vests.
Often, those places have instructors that you can use. It makes sense to experiment using several different models of kayaks and SUP boards before you invest in getting your own. SUP boards cost nearly $1000, so a bit of experience is beneficial in making equipment decisions.
Dressing for the Water
It is water and usually hot outside, so bathing suits are a popular choice since you typically have the potential to get wet. Some people even wear rash guards or wetsuits over their swimsuits.
When you are on the water, there are reflection challenges that increase sun exposure. It is wise to have sunglasses when you paddle. Also, do not forget the life preservers. Safety first!
Fun and fitness for the whole family!
