Stand-Up Paddle Boarding Is Easy to Learn… And Will Get You In Shape

And you can give it a try on Lake Norman.

Summer and anything on the water always seem to be synonymous with each other. Whether it’s a road trip to the Lake or hanging out at home in the pool, we tend to spend a lot of time near the water. One activity growing in popularity is SUP (stand-up paddle boarding), where you stand on a board and paddle through the water. At first impression, it’s pretty intimidating. Not to mention, many are afraid they’ll fall off and completely wipe out.

But thanks to the folks at My Aloha Paddle and Surf, you can feel a little more reassured to give paddle boarding a try. That being said, this video is not a replacement for an introductory lesson. So, sign up for one if you’re feeling inspired!
