Paddle Board Balance 5 Tips
It’s not always easy to find balance on your board when up for the first time or while on a smaller board and paddling through boat wakes, wind or small waves. Use these paddle board balance tips to paddle more, swim less!
– Get low not high when you get tippy
– Paddle when you get tippy – don’t freeze and try to balance.
– When in doubt, paddle
– Momentum is stability.
– The paddle in the water is more stable than when in the air
– Practice the above tips, wear a leash and PFD to avoid losing your board or ending up on the news.
