A Stand Up Paddle is a large board on which you can stand and go forward on the water with a paddle. Some go surfing on small or larger waves with it, others prefer to use it as a balance board to practice yoga or simply go for a tour. You can stand up paddle pretty much anywhere you can find water: on the sea, the ocean, canals or lakes. Stand up paddling is especially good to train your balance. It may seem difficult to carry a stand up paddle board around but you can find great blow up stand up paddle boards which will fit perfectly in the trunk of your car to take with you on all your outdoor adventures.
