Paddling is a functional training to increase performance, that can challenge even the athletically fit. Develops strength and efficiency in movement, without working muscles in isolation like traditional resistance training. SUP training helps develop explosive strength while moving, the fundamental of all sport.

Cross training on unstable surfaces your body is not used to, trains new neural coordination between muscles groups.
