Most people can pick up paddle boarding within the first SUP session, no lesson necessary. However, there is more to stand up paddle boarding than meets the eye, and even though most people consider their SUP experience a success because they can stand and somewhat navigate their board, there are some simple tips that can improve their paddle experience.
In this post, I will equip you with tools to combat the number one question I hear from SUP newbies while establishing their paddle technique -- "How do I get my SUP to go straight?"
I am logged at about 65 paddle days so far this year.
I feel that I haven’t gone out and paddled enough.
This year is different.

I had to learn to let go. I had to learn how to relax. I had to learn about sacrifice and protecting my assets.
"I forced myself to drive to Golden on Saturday night so that I would compete in the Cross on Sunday. I woke up on Sunday morning depressed because of the changes to my life lately and I was questioning my decisions in everything. I was questioning if I should justify spending the money for the entry fee for this race and that if sacrificing so much to race every weekend was worth it".
