We are all sometimes guilty of having overly busy schedules and not managing our time wisely. Often, we get wrapped up in our careers and forget to make time for the truly important things. This summer, why not try an activity that the whole family can enjoy together: stand up paddleboarding! This low impact sport is suitable for all ages and a perfect way to get some exercise while spending quality time with your kids.
Stand up paddling strengthens your core muscles and helps improve your balance on and off the board, resulting in a happier and healthier you! And unlike most other sports, it’s easy to learn and requires no prior experience to have some fun. No matter your age or athletic ability, you can get on a board and be paddling out on the water in no time!
While it’s nice to break free from daily routines and get out on the water by yourself, it’s even nicer to include your kids. Not only do you create valuable memories for them, but you set a great example by showing them that physical activity can be pleasurable. Hop on a board while your little dude sits on deck or have your young diva paddle alongside you!
Check out Paddle Diva’s littlest dude. After helping pull the boards to the beach and checking out the tides, he hops on deck with Paddle Diva Team Rider Aunt Kat for a day in the sun. With mom close by, life jacket fastened, and sunblock on, Conor cruises the open waters and gets to explore nature and his love of boats from a new and exciting point of view!
