by Adventura Cayman Rental company in Grand Cayman

SUP (Stand up Paddling) is not just popular among adults; it is also really fun for children & an excellent way to introduce them to an exhilarating form of cross training while having ultimate fun in the calm water of Grand Cayman. Whether your kid is acrobatically inclined or not, SUP can be relished by kids of all ages & the advantages are innumerable. Apart from being totally fun, paddling an SUP also helps in improving a child’s balance, coordination skill, fitness level and of course his self-confidence. There's different SUP rental in Grand Cayman that works well for children but as a common rule, they’ll have the best time paddling a board that’s 8-9ft long or less.

The Basic Moves:
Once your kid feels good standing up on the SUP they can practice a few typical moves like:

• Turning

• Accelerating & decelerating

• Falling & jumping off the board

• Getting back on the board in the profound water

Paddling on the calm water of Grand Cayman is going to be a little different experience in comparison to paddle boarding in ocean surf but each of the above-mentioned skills should still be learned regardless of the setting. Having the self-belief to not just paddle the board to get on & off the board in the water will make your kids feel far more comfortable.

Go for a location that features calm water & is not too busy. This won’t only help keep the board more steady but there will be fewer distractions as well. Inflatable SUP’s are perfect for kids since they’re lightweight, easy to carry and a little softer, which helps soften the landing for falls.

Ensure the paddle fits their size:
While looking for paddleboard rental in Grand Cayman, make sure you rent a paddle board that fits your kid’s size. A paddle that’s too long or that feature a shaft that’s too big will be much more complex for a kid to use. An adjustable paddle is a great option as you can adjust it as per your child’s height and weight.

Note: Kids who want to paddle in flat water should look for an extra inch or two on the paddle, whereas kids who want to paddle in surf should look for a paddle an inch or two shorter.

Inflatable SUP’s for children:
Technically a child could employ any inflatable Stand up Paddling. Younger kids can sit on your board while you paddle if you’re comfy with that. Older kids possibly will wish to paddle by themselves.

However, there’re many SUPs designed especially for children. Inflatable SUP is ideal since they’ve more protection for falling, are light, stable and easy for a child to carry. Also, they can be stored in small spaces & carried in the trunk of your car.

Conclusion:
No matter which types of stand-up paddling you decide to do, in Grand Cayman you are no short of options. There are plenty of service providers available that offer SUP rental in Grand Cayman at a pocket-friendly price.
