Standup paddling. A sport invented by the Hawaiians, perfected by surfers all over the world, and now gone mainstream thanks to mass production. A lot of people really enjoy this sport because it doesn’t require a huge learning curve in order to have a fun day out on the water. If you can stand with two feet apart and move your arms side to side, stand up paddling should be a no brainer for you. That’s why people with no surfing experience nor any kind of paddling experience can just hop on a board and be off on their way.

But there’s a lot more to this sport than just going for a relaxing paddle out on the water. That’s why I’ve compiled a list of six unique ways you can use a standup paddle board this summer.
