Confession: My first time on a SUP was a bit of a disaster – I was on the ocean, got knocked off by a wave and lost my paddle.
This past Fall Demo Days had to be one of my favorite Demos to date. As ACK’s Marketing Event Manager, the four Demo Days in Austin, San Marcos, Mississippi City and Conroe, Texas are some of the largest events of my year.
Since you rented that SUP (standup paddleboard) last summer, you can’t seem to get it off your mind, we get it – It’s fun, you get a great workout, and all the while your getting perfectly sun-kissed. There are a few different kinds of boards to choose from and choosing correctly can be difficult. So, in efforts to avoid making some mistakes, we’ve detailed the different kinds of choices you can opt for with descriptions and examples to boot.
Paddle boarding is not only a fun activity but it can also be a fantastic form of exercise. It is a low impact activity that engages your core while simultaneously giving you a great burn in your arms, legs, and back.
At ACK we love paddling for a number of reasons- but we don’t want to focus on why we are obsessed! We took to our Facebook page and asked all of our customers what makes them want to go out paddling and got some great answers.
Stand up paddling (SUP) has been popular for many years now but it’s still a new and exciting concept for many paddlers. One of the greatest things about SUP is that it requires minimal gear and can take on just about any body of water (though having the right board for the job certainly helps).
