Never been on board before? No problem. In the following article we describe what you should pay attention to and why you should definitely try SUP. Who doesn't know them, the people who stand on their boards on the Alster and move slowly, sometimes faster.

But is that even a real sport? And if so, can I do that too? How does it even work and can I get back on the board easily? If you're wondering how you can be as relaxed as these paddlers, be sure to read this article.

What these paddlers are doing on their boards is not rocket science. The sport is called Stand Up Paddling or SUP for short. In the following you can expect detailed instructions with everything a beginner needs to know about SUP.

The stand up paddle board

Weight:

  • 7 kg up to 20 kg, 90% of the boards are inflatable

Length:

  • <275 cm used for fast turns and surfing as well as children

  • 275 cm - 365 cm the all-rounder for lakes, rivers, smaller waves

  • > 380 cm for touring or racing, high speeds, loss of maneuverability and stability

Zur Vorbereitung an Land

preparation

  • Roll out the board on a flat surface

  • Connect the hose to the pump

  • Remove the valve lock on the SUP board

  • Fasten the hose to the valve by turning it

  • Inflate the board (from 12 PSI pressure up to a maximum of 15PSI), the exact value is given on the valve ring / the operating instructions

  • Remove the hose again and close the valve

Attach the fin

The so-called fin ensures that the board does not tip over for straight-ahead driving and better stability of the board in the water in light waves. The fin, which is usually made of plastic, has to be pushed into the underside of the board and fixed with a locking pin before driving. Of course, there are also differences here depending on the level and destination.

Adjust the paddle length

A paddle that is too long can lead to shoulder problems, while a paddle that is too short can lead to loin and back problems.

The following rule of thumb is used for optimal power transmission: paddle length = body size + - 20cm

Attach the leash

The leash serves as a tether and is attached to the stern and ankle. This line is an indispensable safety measure and serves to ensure that the SUP board does not swim away with the current after you have involuntarily fallen into the water.

Get on your board and the journey begins

The first steps for SUP beginners

  1. Lay the board on the jetty and attach the leash

  2. Lay the board in the water with the front facing the bank so that the fin is not damaged

  3. Sit with your knees on the board, about in the middle of the board at the height of the handles

  4. Paddle a little away from the jetty so that you don't fall on the jetty or into shallow water

  5. Feet are parallel and shoulder width apart

  6. Place the paddle across your body and support it with your hands

  7. Aiming at a point and focusing on it

  8. Now put your feet down one after the other, the wider the more stable, shifting your buttocks backwards

  9. Carefully straighten the upper body from a crouched position with the hips stable

  10. When standing up, the paddle can be used to balance

The right stand

  • As when standing up, keep your feet parallel and shoulder width apart

  • The view is directed forward at the level of the wrist strap

  • Knees are slightly bent, this provides stability and can compensate for small waves

  • Correct position when the front part of the board is not above water and the rear end is not underwater

Correct paddling

  • Optimal power transmission and stability are achieved through the triangle of forces consisting of pull, pressure arm and upper body

  • Attack with your upper arm (pressure arm) vertically above the paddle, do not extend your arm

  • Attack the paddle under the handle with the lower arm (pull arm), arm remains almost straight

                                                                           3 phases of the paddle stroke:

  1. Pierce phase , paddle as far as possible sideways into the water in front of you and immerse completely

  2. Pulling phase , pull the paddle back vertically and as close as possible to the board until you reach the height of your feet

  3. Return phase , pull the paddle out of the water with the pressure arm , turn the paddle 90 ° and move it back forwards

Tip: Imagine pulling the board towards the paddle, not the other way around!

Change the paddle side

  • First let go of the paddle with your upper arm

  • Pull arm lifts the paddle forward and slides up onto the handle

  • Move previous pressure arm to paddle shaft

Spin the board

  • Pierce the paddle on the "wrong" side and pull it in a semicircle to the tip of the board

  • Pierce the paddle on the other side and bow to the stern

Get out of the water

  • Crouch down again

  • Hold on to the bridge and place both hands on it

  • First with the buttocks on the bridge to prevent the board from sliding away
