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.”

Check out xtr surfboards or Patagonia for their quality epoxy products which also

have minimal impact on the environment in manufacture and lifespan.

Sometimes its hard to chose snacks that aren’t full of too much sugar, but are high in protein and carbs, so here are a few good healthy energising snacks that are a great way to re-fill and re-boost.

FRESH FRUIT: Any fresh fruit at all :-). But if you need some ideas try pineapple, mango, orange, strawberries, bananas (GREAT for energy), grapes, melon, kiwi, blueberries…..If you don’t feel like eating the fruit, throw them into a blender and whip them up into a yummy smoothie. You can try adding granola, oats or yogurt for extra energy and protein. Protein powder is also awesome if you’ve had a real work out to restore those muscles!
