A beautiful Saturday afternoon meant we were finally going to try out something I have wanted to do for a while now… Stand Up Paddle Boarding! Also known as SUP, it is a great (and fun) full body workout and is fairly easy to catch on once you get used to it.
Since it was our first time stand up paddle boarding, we opted to start with a lesson to make sure we got the basics down before going out on the water on our own. We went to the Boulder Reservoir and got our SUP lessons and boards from Rocky Mountain Paddle Board.
The lessons are a must, especially if it is your first time. They were very informative and were so helpful in preparing us how to use proper form and techniques. After learning the basics, we went out on the water starting on our knees just to get a feel for being on the water and get comfortable on the board.
It doesn’t take long to become more stable and comfortable on the board. It is a blast to be out on the water and it’s a fantastic way to take advantage of gorgeous weather!
Have you ever been stand up paddle boarding? What did you think?
