Bringing the West Coast to New York

West Coasters have long since known the benefits of adding water resistance to their fitness regimen for maximum health and wellness and now you too can get in on the fun while getting fit at the same time with Stand Up Paddleboarding. Done on flat water or light surf, Stand Up Paddleboarding, (SUP), combines the exhilaration of a water sport with strength and endurance training for a well rounded workout that is not only good for you but fun too! SUP is an easy-to-learn water sport done on what is essentially an oversized surfboard specifically designed for use on both flat water and light surf. The volume of the board makes it so the rider is able to stand up and paddle with both mobility and stability. Used as a touring craft on flat water, you get to see much more from the higher vantage point in a standing position as opposed to sitting down in a kayak or canoe. From a workout perspective, the body’s core muscles are engaged at all times while balancing loosens and strengthens joints promoting a healthy posture.

Our main focus and goal for creating this company is to introduce SUP safely to our community through educational programs developed and implemented into the Town of Hempstead Parks Department. Build confidence and challenge your body with a lesson from our certified instructors. All lessons include board, paddle and life vest. SUP-ing will open a whole new world and make the water more exciting than ever before. With the help of a competent instructor, anyone can learn to ride these boards within minutes. Once you experience the thrill of SUP-ing it will be difficult to return to a seated boat. There is very little gear required for SUP-ing: a board, a PFD, (Personal Flotation Device), a safety whistle and a paddle. Just toss the board on the water, climb on and go!

Board sales, rentals, accessories and lessons are now available at New York Stand Up Paddleboard, New York’s only dedicated Stand Up Paddleboard shop. We look forward to bringing this sport to the masses of fun fitness minded New Yorkers.
