SUP e Fitness
SUP is, to all intents and purposes, considered a physical sport, that can be compared to other‚ fitness‚ sports. The physical effort involves every part of the body and therefore represents a total workout. Using the paddle correctly strengthens all muscle groups and, working under the anaerobic threshold, is an excellent way to fat!
One of the most enjoyable SUP activities is free paddling on a lagoon type water areas, or any flat water area, observing the wildlife and breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape. Larger and more stable boards are advisable when cruising in order to make the excursion a more enjoyable experience.
Racing is divided into several categories of sport, both long- and short-distance, giving athletes the opportunity to compete on set courses. The boards used for racing are either 12.6 or 14 long (for heavier athletes) and are tapering in line and shape to give greater stability.
One of the most exhilarating ways of practicing SUP is wave-riding. Given the board‚ dimensions, it is easy to surf even small waves. This, in a way, allows the athlete to even in typical Mediterranean conditions although SUP is even more fun with waves over 1m high!
Here SUP shows us clearly its ancient origins, when the Polynesians used long boards with an oar to get from one island to another, using waves and wind to help them. Paddling ‚down wind, properly handled, can prove to be a truly significant, remarkable, meaningful experience!
