TIPS ON SURFING A STAND UP PADDLE BOARD IN DUBAI
One of the most exciting parts of the sport is STAND UP PADDLE surfing
“almost everyone who wants to buy a Stand Up Paddle board wants to at least catch small waves and learning to surf is way easier on a SUP”
The good news is that 80% of all boards we sell – the all-rounder, will do this. By far the best way to learn to surf is on a Stand Up Paddle board as you can easily see the waves coming and you have a large paddle to help get you in the right spot and when you take off on the wave you are already standing up! The larger board floats more easily and makes it easier to stay on the wave and surf it.
We stock a wide range of surfing SUP’s from performance boards to all-rounders, so let us help you get into one of the most exciting parts of the sport. The Surf-specific Stand Up Paddleboard is more specialised than all-round Stand Up Paddleboard. Read more about the different types of boards here or give us a call.
PADDLE SURFING adds a host of really cool new dimensions to catching and surfing waves. A whole new skill set is required to use the paddle. It is a simple, yet beautiful tool and it is almost like learning to surf all over again with all the thrills that go with it!
Not many of us forget the first wave we ever caught from beginning to end. If you could bottle that feeling you would. Well SUP surfing lets that genie out of the bottle along with all the thrills, spills and fun of learning a whole new board sport.
The larger board and the power of the paddle, gets you onto the wave VERY early, already standing up. You see the waves easier as you are higher up, you are faster to get to the right position in the lineup and it is easier to get to un-crowded spots.
When you start out sup surf you are going to enjoy riding 1-2’ on-shore waves again. Sure you are going to progress, but you will enjoy the learning proces, get a LOT fitter in the process and have the ability to cruise the coastline from break to break.
Just paddling around 6’ above the water and seeing down into it, adds a whole new dimension to enjoying the ocean.
Stand up boards allow you to catch waves well before they actually break. They are hard to turn from the paddling position so you need to get back towards the tail to have any effect on direction. You will learn to use the paddle for trimming, steering and turning.
If you have ever had a SUP SURF board heading towards you, out of control you will know how dangerous it is. So wear a leg rope!
You will actually progress faster if you start out and practice on flat water.
As a general rule, stay away from other surfers or swimmers when you start out in the sup surf. Even once you are better try to stay away from crowded spots – it is easy for the stand up rider to pick off all the best waves – NOT COOL!BOOK SUP LESSON
