Paddle Boarding provides a lot of great benefits! If you want to find out why you should go paddle boarding, just keep reading below.
Benefit #1: Everyone Can do it
You can choose your own pace based on your skill set and mood for the day. You can paddle board across a glassy lake, relaxing and just enjoy being out on the water or you can choose to paddle over waves in the ocean for a workout session. From children to adults, everyone can enjoy paddle boarding. Just make sure to choose the right scene and scenario for the right person.
Benefit #2: Go Anywhere
With paddle boarding you can go to the ocean, a lake, a river, or even a canal. It doesn’t really matter where, it just matters where you want to be. Most paddle boarders like to enjoy a calm ride through a harbor or on a lake. It gives them the option to either float along or push themselves harder to get a workout in. Paddle boards are also light, so they are easier to carry than a kayak or cannoe.
Benefit #3: Solo or Social
Paddle boarding can be done all by yourself or you can bring along a few friends. We like to make it social and enjoy sharing the experience. On a paddle board paddling across a smooth lake it makes it easy for conversation. Everyone is relaxed and you’re out in the open, with not a worry in the world. If you have children with you or even a dog, you can allow them to sit on the paddle board while you paddle! This makes it less solo and more social.
Benefit #4: Stress-Reliever
This is the final and best part about paddle boarding, in our opinion. Since paddle boarding can be a relaxing sport done solo or social. It allows your body to release endorphins, providing a short term boost of happiness. This boost will eventually lead to better sleep, an improved mood, and less anxiety.
Being around large bodies of water has been proven to have relaxing effects. Even a photograph of a lake or ocean and the sounds that come along with those areas reduce stress.
