Ever wondered if you can surf with an ISUP? Definitely! Let's dive deeper into what we mean by this.
CAN YOU SURF AN ISUP?
An ISUP can be used in the surf on an entry/recreational level basis. The traditional longboard style shape being the best option for a surf ISUP as it will have the best design features for success in the surf. A nice feature of the ISUP is that when you fall on the board while in the learning process it is not hard and rigid, and a softer impact is the result. Enjoy your ride!
DOES SUP HELP YOU TO LEARN TO SURF?
Stand Up Paddling will most definitely help you learning to surf. The balance skills acquired from SUP will give you a solid base when learning to surf. Learning to surf on a SUP is also a bit easier than traditional surf because you are already standing so all you must do is catch the wave. Remember to always practice proper “Surf Etiquette” while out surfing with others!
IS SUP EASIER THAN SURFING?
Stand Up Paddling is much easier to learn than surfing and will give you a much better full body work-out. New paddlers should make sure to be on a board that is conducive to learning with the correct board dimensions. A Jimmy Styks board that measures 10’-11’ long and with a minimum width of 32” is a must for board stability for new paddlers.
