There are many activities that can just get chalked up as fad or things that are popular for a set period of time and then just sort of fall off of our radars. For a long time the thought was that stand up paddleboarding would fall into this fad category, but that could not be farther from the truth. The market for inflatable stand up paddleboards, or iSUP, has never been bigger. There is a reason why so many people are on their iSUP every day in coastal areas across the United States and the world.
Live in the Moment
The whole idea of the board is to put nothing between you and the water but the board itself. This really puts you in a state of mind where you can get away from everything around you in the world and just explore. We always strive to live in the now rather than thinking about what happened during our day at work or what we have to do in the days ahead. With an iSUP, you have no choice but to live in that moment, float around and take in everything that the experience has to offer to you.
Your overall level of wellness is something that you always want to be cognizant of. Wellness is all about challenging yourself to be better, to be healthier, and to just feel great. When you are on an iSUP board you are going to be challenging yourself mentally as it comes to balance and letting go of everything around you. You are going to be using certain muscles in ways you never have before. Many people think that going on an iSUP is very similar to doing yoga and this is true. Think of that board as your own personal floating yoga mat.
Plenty of Variety
We get bored when we do the same types of activities time and time again. When you are on an iSUP though, you do not have to worry about that happening. No two experiences on the board are ever going to be exactly the same. The water is never going to be the same as it is today and when you hit new areas with your portable, inflatable board, that is what you are going to be able to quickly discover.
Life is better on an iSUP board because you are free from reality. Standup paddleboarding is a whole state of mind and a sense of letting go that many others are embracing. Are you ready to make your life better on an iSUP?
