Lol, it was more of a "really?!" like, here we go with Chad again... haha. I mean for a fitness advocate I'm surprised you would even slightly discourage any physical activity - just about anything beats sitting around just talking about getting in shape.

I'm not saying it's the MOST INCREDIBLE ULTIMATE WORK OUT EVER haha but it's a pretty good, full body, enjoyable means of staying active and building endurance and strength.

And that's cool, not everyone has to love it.

I don't disagree that its a "pretty good" workout.

But he said he wanted something to stay fit, there's a lot of better options out there.

I will say, that most picks I see of SUP are of women riding them wearing bikinnis. Might be better than a tread mill.

Kayaking is dangerous this year. I found out a client of mine died in a kayak accident and it scared the stuffing out of me.

I have to poke the bear a little....right wakebabe?


That said, for something to do on the water that requires some balance, core, and what not its not a bad option.

But you're gonna get really bored really quick.

like flipping tires in your backyard??

That being said, the only watercraft I enjoy burn fossil fuels and accelerate global warming at an alarming rate (if you are Al Gore).

If I lived on the ocean I'd get one for when the waves are small, because the boards are massive and will catch the tiniest waves. On the same note, dragging one of those around and having to drive it to a lake just to get some exercise would get old quick.

My SUJ seems to offer quite a bit of fitness, balance, etc, while also being a ton of fun, burning fossil fuels to boost the economy, and offering some refreshing time on the water.

Will SUP improve my core?

Do I have to wear a bro hat?

My dumbass is to uncoordinated to stand and paddle at the same time but sup ladies look fine

You'll work your lower body too. I use KB swings to strengthen my hips for more umph and push in my stroke.

KA, in July we are going to start classes at Cass Lake on Tuesdays. Come on out for a beginner and PaddleFit - Mikey too. I'll be helping teach those. That is going to be close to you, right?

Sorry to hear about your client. And yes the water can be dangerous, safety is a top priority, but proper preparation and awareness can greatly reduce the risks. I always wear my leash, and at least an inflatable PFD (which only does my good if I'm conscious) and I paddle with someone else 99% of the time. And of course conditions play a role, we've gotten caught in some strong winds with clouds rolling in that we thought we were going to have to just end up on the wrong side of the lake and wait it out but we managed to push through and make it back in time to miss the storm.

Sometimes you have so much fun I just don't know how to handle it....



But - Bones will you please help me out here and get my back that is is a good work out. He's seen the results of a summer worth of paddling/race training.

So for those who are interested in trying this sport - especially for an extra work out we have 2 spots open for our PaddleFit class tonight at Spring Mill Pond in the Island Lake State Park. You must sign up before hand, you can PM me for details. And if you're a beginner you have to take the beginner class that is held right before the PaddleFit class. Beg. SUP class starts at 530 and the PaddleFit class starts at 7. There are both men and women signed up for tonights class and we have a pretty good work out planned out.

I was fishing from my kayak last night on Long lake, 2 girls came out on SUP's and lasted about 5 minutes. The 3 other kayakers out pretty much paddled around the lake. I got a kick out of the guy who backed his Exploder down the ramp into the lake and loaded his jetski into the back of it. I was suprised it fit with the hatch closed. Only in U-tucky!

I'm not sure what your point is re: sup? If it's that "they only lasted 5 minutes" how is that any different really than making the comparison between the guy who only lasts 0.10 miles on an off road trail versus the guy who runs an entire day?

I was on a board for 3 hours last night, put 3 clients through an intense work out, taught 2 of them some race tips, got a good dose of Vitamin D, enjoyed myself and got more exercise than probably 85% of the US population, lol.
