Top 5 Health Benefits of Paddleboarding, Waialua, Hawaii

Standing up on a surfboard and using a canoe paddle to propel yourself forward might have seemed like a strange concept many years ago, but stand-up paddleboarding has only become more popular. Applicable to lakes, rivers, and the ocean, paddleboarding offers a wide variety of outstanding health benefits. If you are looking for a new way to burn calories or just want to spend more time on the water, here are five reasons to take up this hobby.

What Are the Health Benefits of Paddleboarding?

1. Provides a Full-Body Workout

Paddleboarding offers a comprehensive workout for the entire body. It sculpts the core, tones the arms and legs, and works the back and shoulders. Just about every muscle in your body is utilized during this stand-up water sport.

2. Improves Endurance

Paddling is constant with this fun and challenging activity. While you might only be able to paddleboard for 10 or 15 minutes on your first day, working at it will slowly build your endurance.

3. Reduces Stress

4. Builds Strength

The full-body workout paddleboarding provides dramatically improves strength. The resistance from the water builds the muscles, so you feel stronger and healthier each day. Soreness is natural after the first few outings if you aren’t used to using those muscles.

5. Helps With Balance

Balance and coordination improve with this water sport, as you need to constantly balance yourself to stay on the board. Your core is working to keep you on the board, even if you don’t think you are actively trying to remain upright.
