VIDEO – Beginner guide to stand up paddle boarding

Get a stand up paddle board for Christmas? We have some videos here to get you prepared and ready for your first paddle session. We are no stranger to great SUP videos from Sam Ross. Check out our how to paddle board section for a series on great introductory video lessons he created a few years ago. Here we feature some updated versions of the videos, with a little overlap, just to give some new tips, refresh our memories or to give seasoned paddlers a quick reminder of the correct techniques and practices. We start with the beginner guide to stand up paddle boarding.

Want to get to the next level and improve your paddling?

Now use your core to engage your whole body in the stroke to transfer even more power to the paddle.

Visualising is key to every sport I’ve participated in. Many paddlers have a few months to prepare for the summer season, make the most of it to maximise your fun this summer. See you on the water!
