STAND UP PADDLE BOARDING TIPS FOR BEGINNERS

If you’ve been thinking about trying SUP for the first time, there are a few important tips you should keep in mind so that you make the most out of your stand up paddle boarding experience. Firstly, to ensure you are staying safe, it’s strongly recommended that you are using a leash. This will mean you will always be tethered to your board in the event you fall off. Other beginner tips for SUP include:
  • Use the right gear to suit your skill level. Do your research or seek the advice of a professional
  • Check the wind direction & start learning when wind speeds are low
  • Learn the correct paddling technique—here in Noosa, there are many places offering lessons
  • Give yourself plenty of space to practice. Paddling close by another rider will only create additional waves & make it more difficult for you to learn

If you’re a skilled surfer looking for the biggest waves, check out Granite Bay. Or if you’re in search of a more scenic spot, you might want to head to Tea Tree. For surfing beginners, there are also many surf lessons offered across the region.
