5 good reasons to practice inflatable Stand Up Paddle
Reason 1: A sport accessible to all
Stand-Up Paddle is a discipline that anyone can try it! Whatever your age, size or physical condition, you will have no trouble getting into the sport. You just need to be able to swim. Having a bit of balance is also important, but this can be learned very quickly. It is far from being a dangerous sport, if you practice on a flat and calm water. And if you do it right, you won’t injure yourself and your joints (unlike other water sports). Perfect if you want to do a lot of sessions without the risk of being sore the next day!
In addition, there are boards of Stand-Up Paddle for all budgets. At SROKA, we offer inflatable SUPs from 430 euros. In order to democratize the practice and for everyone to find their own way, you will find among our ranges, the paddle that suits your practice: walk, touring, racing, paddle-surfing… but also the type of water you want to sail on: lake, river, sea… All these aspects will help you to choose between a SUP type All Around or touring (pointed nose). The latter provides more glide, with less effort required, and allows you to cover more distance. As well as havinga sufficient length. In general, it is recommended to opt for a fairly long board, at least 11′, for rides. In our article “Choosing your inflatable paddle”, you will find detailed advice on how to choose the ideal board.
