Are you ready to dive into summer? Or maybe you prefer just being sea misted? Either way, if you're craving a fun, sometimes challenging, water sport, consider stand up paddle boarding (SUP for short). Popularized by big wave surfer Laird Hamilton, the handful of times I've paddle boarded, worries seemed to blow away behind me as I focused ahead, balancing and enjoying the ride, while working my arms, core, legs—every body part. Even my feet! Which grounded me on a board atop the water, instead of my usual yoga mat or kickboxing floor.
If you're hesitant, Lisa Johnson, paddle board instructor at Marina Paddle in Marina del Rey, has some beginner tips to motivate you to try SUP this summer.
