Some advices to correctly ride the inflatable paddle board. Dry your inflatable stand up paddle board AFTER you rinse and BEFORE you store it. Make sure your board is dry before putting it away for storage. Also make sure that wherever it’s stored will stay dry too – not partially dry, not only dry on sunny days, but always dry. Although inflatable SUPs are durable and built for the water, leaving them wet or in a damp place can cause damage over time. It’s not that a SUP would be unusable after improperly storing it, but you’ll probably have to spend some time to clean it off before going out. More importantly, improperly storing your board regularly will cause deterioration in the long-run.
In just two hours of paddling most people will take a couple of thousand strokes. Lifting a heavy paddle that many times can quickly tire you out, which is why most experienced paddlers will invest in the lightest paddle they can afford. The material of your paddle will also determine how stiff it is. A stiff paddle is more efficient at transferring the power of your stroke. The blade is the part of the paddle that you dip into the water when you’re taking a stroke. The size, shape and offset of the blade all affect how the paddle performs. There’s no hard and fast rule for determining exactly what size paddle blade you need. Over time, you’ll probably develop a preference for a certain size blade based on the type of paddling you do and other factors, like your body type.
There are many benefits to paddle boarding, whether you’re looking to get fit and lose some weight in the process, or an experienced water sport enthusiast looking for a new challenge. SUPs are good for high impact workouts such as surfing and racing, to low impact activities such as yoga, fishing and recreational paddling. You can go anywhere: One of the best things about paddle boarding is that it can be done anywhere where there is water. Unlike a gym or exercise class, you’re not restricted by where you can go or by opening hours.

Another inflatable stand up paddle board advice: Stay out of the way: The ocean is huge, lakes are big and the rivers are wide. Yet we always seem to want to paddle on the same square inch of water! Paddle boards are big and they can hurt when they hit you. Be mindful of other water users and when you’re learning the art of SUP. Make sure you have plenty of room to practice standing, falling and paddling. Look after your board and paddle: Paddle boards for beginners are big. To make them manageable, manoeuvrable and strong they need to be built out of lightweight high tech materials making them expensive. Look after your board and paddle, they are fragile when thrown around on land. Your board will thank you!
