by Adventura Cayman Rental company in Grand Cayman

The fastest growing water sports, SUP (Stand Up Paddle Boarding) came from modest beginnings back in 2004 when it first touched down on U.S. shores. It is now overtaking almost all water sports in the world. Though you can try this water sports on any water body in the world, but trying it on the beautiful water of Grand Cayman is definitely a unique experience. This is why the demand of paddle board rental in Grand Cayman is always high. The sport is a wonderful full-body core workout, and it is also a completely new way to explore the water of Grand Cayman. People of all body types, ages and skill levels can try this adventurous water sports by learning some beginner paddle boarding skill.

Make use of a leash:
This, in fact, goes for all SUP boarders but the quicker you’re alert how important a leash is in any sort of condition the safer you & everybody else will be when you’re paddling. There’re different sorts of leashes & different types of attachment points relying on what padding style you’re doing.

Ensure your paddle is the right way:
We have all done it because it looks right at the time. You wish the paddle to shovel the waters as you strive to paddle and balance without falling down. However, as we all finally discover, the paddle goes the other way as it works more efficiently when in the standing posture and also consequence in a smooth paddle stroke & less load on your elbows and shoulders.

Face the appropriate way:
For regular water goers or non-surfers, it isn’t immediately clear which end is the front/nose of the board. Numerous beginner boards feature large spherical nose &tail boards with great stability. So, before jumping on the board checks out where the fins are and ensure they’re in the back while paddling.

Paddle with your core:
Using your arms is a big NO while paddling. Though this may sound a bit weird but paddling is best performed by using your core muscles. These are the strongest muscle in a human body and offer the most effective power when you paddle on the water. Standing up tall & making use of your arms to paddle in the water, will be pretty exhausting as you won’t get adequate power.

Fall off your board in the correct manner:
Even the professionals fall off so this is always going to be a part of your SUP boarding. What’s vital though, is how you fall! Just like you can practice tricks & wave riding, practicing fall or at least being aware of how to fall & fall securely can make sure your session won’t end with injuries.

Paddleboards are usually large in size and they can hurt when you fall, so you wish to fall away from your board. Don’t worry, you are affixed to it with a leash and it won’t go away, but falling far of the board will allow you fall benevolently into waters without falling on the fins or the board. This is particularly vital in any location with waves or currents as the board will move independently.
