Top 14 reasons to adore stand-up paddleboarding, this misunderstood sport

The world’s population is divided into two categories: people who practice right-wing sports and people who practice stand-up paddle surfing. Paddleboarding is a much too underrated sport that deserves to be given love and water to hydrate. So these are the main reasons why paddle boarding is THE sport to join at the beginning of the school year to have a body that can lift two refrigerators at once.

1. We can do it anywhere

By the sea, by a lake, in marshes, in a swimming pool, on an ice rink, on the roof of the town hall of Cholet… The paddle can be practiced everywhere because it is a sport for handsome, there is no no debate.

2. It works 36,000 muscles

The arms, the abs, the quadri, the equilateral triangle… Which muscle doesn’t actually work during a paddling session? Beach volleyball is obsolete, now paddle is the sport of the biggest bombs. In fact, it seems that the stars who take good photos do it all. I say it like this…

3. You can take your paddle anywhere

Unlike surfboards or uneven bars, you can take a paddle anywhere in your bag as there are very practical inflatable paddles to ride on any surface at any time.

4. It’s super relaxing

Isn’t it wonderful to sunbathe there and let the current carry you along by paddling a bit every now and then while admiring beautiful landscapes? How cool. Driven by love.

5. You are less likely to paddle with your neighbor than in a canoe

If you haven’t made a friend cry for giving him a huge paddle to row, you haven’t really lived. This situation is statistically 1000 times less likely on a paddle because you are more likely to be solo on your board and there is no face at paddle height. Finally normal.

6. There are many paddle sports

You can do yoga on a paddle, abs on a paddle, volleyball on a paddle, motocross on a paddle… Soon we will build mini houses on a paddle to do everything on this little miracle, and life will be good .

7. You work maximum on your balance

Paddleboarding may be a liner in a lake, but there are always people who are bad enough at sports to fall like apples that are a little overripe. The paddle is therefore ideal for working on your sense of balance and becoming a slackline ace once you return to dry land.

8. It’s a lot of fun to do with friends

First of all, you should know that there are giant paddles that can seat ten people, ie two basketball teams. But if you are more of a solo team, you can also take a paddle with your whole team and have fun pushing each other to the fleet. Best game I’ve ever played.

9. It’s a lot easier than surfing

Surfing is hard, surfing is expensive, surfing is an asshole sport and surfing is the worst sport in the world. Unlike the paddle which is a wonderful invention. Go paddle boarding.

10. You can do water sports without getting wet.

I told you, but the paddle is as stable as an elephant in a puddle. So unless you’re drunk every time you step on them, chances are you’ll get water on the bottom of the panties. And if so, know that it’s downright unfortunate, hahaha, I’m pointing the finger at you.

11. You can bring your dog

And trust me, your poti dog clearly wants to go paddle boarding more than having to walk you one more time. He told me.

12. You can access small secret OKLM coves without a boat

It allows you to practice nudism without worrying about the looks of lifeguards and make giant holes without looking like an 8-year-old who has grown up too quickly.

13. People who paddleboard are three times more likely to be rich and sexy by age 40.

This is a study by INSEE in January 2008 that says so after nearly 30 years of studying the evolution of 12 paddelists in the natural environment. All the more reason to get a DI-RECT board.

14. Jesus loved it

And honestly, this guy used to be really cool, proof that paddle is the new sport to try this fall.
