Our SUP women who have been SUPping for a while all tell us sup is fun, strength-building, empowering and tones your body in a good way. It helps destress and is accessible for all fitness levels. Flat-water paddling builds confidence and core strength.
Still, without stereotyping, women can be a little… doubtful. Therefore we tackle three myths we know you are thinking:
1. SUP is difficult.
Stand up paddle boarding is accessible and much easier than it looks. On most allround boards, you can learn it in literally 10 minutes. Or faster. You simply have to step on your board, grow tall, bend your knees a little, stand straight and paddle. Ask your instructor or watch instructions on sup2thepepeople.com
and ‘just do it’.
2. SUP is expensive.
Of course, the true pro’s under us, would like to own a set, fully adapted to their wishes. Most boards are priced under 1000 dollar/EU, excluding must-haves like a paddle. Jobe sells discount-packages: inflatable paddle boards in a waterproof backpack, complete with pump, paddle, repair kit and leash so you can get on the water immediately. We sell these all-in-one packages
3. SUP is not a true sport.
Ladies, SUP is a true full-body work out sport. Women burn approximately between 500 and 700 calories per hour and men even more: around 800 till 1000 calories per hour. With SUP you focus especially on the traps, lats, triceps, glutes, hamstrings and calves. In the fresh air, which is good for your mental health too.
The nicest thing is, you don’t have to be highly skilled to feel that SUP bliss. SUP is for all ages and sizes.
