5 reasons why Stand up Paddling is the perfect activity for social distancing

7 may 2020
Social distancing... In the meantime you must have heard about it a hundred times. In order to stay safe during the COVID-19 virus it is very important to keep at least 1.5 meter/6 feet distance from each other.

Most of the activities for multiple people aren’t allowed anymore because of social distancing. But, there is an activity which is perfect for these unusual days… Supping!

A paddle session on the water guarantees:

1. A good workout

Did you know that an hour of calm and recreative supping burns around 225 calories? An adventurous hour of supping (think about touring long distances) burns up to 500 calories and an hour of race supping burns up to even 1.000 calories per hour!

2. An amusing activity to spend your hours

Our daily routine has changed abruptly and we’re not able to enjoy most of our daily activities. This means there is some extra spare time to kill, and supping is a perfect activity to be settled for a few hours.

3. A positive boost for your immune system

In order to stay safe and healthy during this pandemic, is also important to have a good immune system. Doing a sporty workout in fresh air will give your immune system a nice boost!

4. Quality time on the water

Supping is a lovely activity to do on your own but it can be even more fun doing it with your friends! Get on your board together with your friends and experience the world of stand up paddling. Laughing and enjoying nature with your friends… Do you need anything more?

5. A healthy journey in the beautiful nature
