As of last year, Kayak Safari has acquired brand new SUPS (stand up paddle boards). This activity is not only the ‘it’ water sport of the moment; it also benefits your core muscles, your balance and even has calming effects!
Stand up paddle boarding is a great way to stay in shape while enjoying the river. Paddle boarding is an all body work-out, focusing mainly on your abs and your mid back muscles. Depending on your speed, it can also widely benefit your shoulder and arm muscles such as triceps and biceps. So if you are looking for a way to strengthen your body while enjoying a peaceful day on the river, look no further!
SUPS are well known to help improve balance as well, be it for personal satisfaction or to help improve skills in another sport; balance is key for any type of physical activity. Your legs muscles will also be hard at work trying to keep you upright on the board.
When it comes to weight-loss, this low impact sport works wonders because it allows you to use up a lot of calories, while at the same time reducing the risks of damage to tendons or ligaments, injuries that you are more likely to find in high impact sports such as weight lifting. Paddle boarding can help you attain a healthier lifestyle.
Stand up paddle boarding had more than just a physical reward.Be it by performing yoga on the paddle board or simply just relaxing on the river, SUPS have a huge impact on our stress levels and help to bring peace of mind. Your body and mind work in unison to get into that paddling rhythm.
So if you are just looking for a peaceful day on the river, or a new way of working out, come and try our SUPs at Kayak Safari, they will be sure to fit your needs!
