New to SUP? It’s Like a First Date, and iROCKER is Your Perfect Mate

We realize Aussies are a lucky bunch, with easy access to so outdoor activities and some of the world’s best beaches. But, let’s face it, a lot of us don’t get outside as much as we should. It’s no wonder, in our tech-centric world of cell phones and mobile apps. Not to knock all of these things, but isn’t life better outside?

Yes! Yes it is. Our team at iROCKER knows this, and it’s why we want to introduce you the incredible sport of stand up paddle.

So if you’re spending too much time inside on your phone or at your desk, why not mix it up a bit and try something new?

Hey You: Meet Stand Up Paddle Boarding

Stand up paddle boarding offers something like 500,000 healthy benefits (and counting), and most people pick it up easily, with a little practice and a firm commitment to having some fun.

If that sounds like you, keep reading.

When you’re out on the water, you get a wonderful mix of a new kind of fun and exercise. You’ve got nature, nurture, excitement and calm. It’s like a You Cocktail. Maybe it is even a six-pack of tinnies, if you’ve invited your best mates to paddle along side you (and you definitely should).

First, let’s talk about what you’ll see. Lots and lots of wildlife! Water, birds, fish, fauna and aaahhhmazing natural beauty. Of course, there’s our gorgeous water under you and sunshine above. Seriously, every SUP-er looks like a painting when they’re on their board.

Second, let’s talk about how SUP feels. Well, we already know you love water, and everything in, on and near the water feels like heaven so, well, SUP feels like heaven.

It also feels like exercise so plan on a little muscle burn in your arms, core and legs. It’s good for you so just go for it.

Excellent so far, right?

Now, for the best part — SUP is FUN!

SUP-ing is a way to learn a new skill, improve your core strength and balance, nurture an important relationship (maybe even with yourself) and meditate with beauty around you.

SUP-ing lets you disconnect — from your phone, your boss, your stress…. Just tune out nagging work mates and forget about your worries for a bit. You’ll be so glad you did.

Another awesome thing about SUP is that while it’s calm, quiet and beautiful, it’s a workout. Yes, if you’re new, you will have to work a bit. But SUP is a low impact workout so you’ll get through it. We promise!

So it’s decided. SUP is for you, whether you’re the type who wants to make it a social event with all your mates, or a solo adventure to clear your head. Either way, it’s a win-win. And if you’re a total SUP newbie, have no fear. We’ve assembled some helpful answers to common newbie questions here.
