So much easier than surfing; and a completely different experience than canoeing, stand up paddleboarding is rapidly becoming popular around the world. It’s easy to understand why. The board is stable and you don’t need a lot of training before you hit the water.
Whether you’re in a queue or in a crowded train compartment, most things you do standing up aren’t really enjoyable. Stand up paddleboarding however, is another story. First off, it’s a whole lot of fun for anyone who loves being on the water, irrespective of age. It’s great to do with family and friends. And you don’t have to drag yourself to the gym to keep fit; this activity improves your strength and endurance and you don’t even realise it.

As you gently glide down the river, take in the sights. Duck ever once in a while under the branches that reach out over the water to create a canopy.
