Health Benefits

Health and fitness experts all over the world are quickly catching up with the outstanding cross-training benefits of SUPS, with several personal trainers in France, England, Australia and the US incorporating the sport into their sessions.
Says Nate Burgoyne, editor of Stand Up Paddle Surfing Magazine: “SUPS is a superior core workout on both flat water and amongst the waves. It is an ideal sport for cross-training as it brings together legs, back, feet, arms, neck and stomach muscles in a graceful display of core strength and balance.
Says SUPS founder and instructor Chris de Aboitiz: “In Noosa Heads where I’m based, people who know nothing about surfing are booking in for a river workout and are enjoying themselves so much they stay on and learn to ride a wave. On the other hand, I’ve got surfers working with me who see the benefits of the paddling and use the flat water routines as a workout when there’s no surf.”

Size Matters !

Bournemouth Poole Sandbanks SUP

I feel so blessed to live on the South Coast, with the sun out I decided to take my SUP out and enjoy the weather.After one hour in the ocean I felt completely  relaxed and happy, its so nice to be out on the sea watching blackcaps dive for bait fish and Bass fish of mature size cruising along the sand bars. The clarity of the ocean and the improving sea temperature is a statement that Summer has nearly arrived, I’m just awaiting the mackerel to return.

The above photo I took at Sandbanks Beach on this Sunday just gone the temp was 12-14’c..Today in contrast is 25’c + 🙂

photo blagged of Facebook from a friend.

Enjoy The Ocean,

and please take your litter home.
