Description

SUP pioneer Rob Casey’s stand up paddling book was one of the first available and remains a valuable source of both beginning through advanced SUP (paddle board) instructional guides available.

SUP is one of the fastest growing sports in North America, offering a range of challenges from mellow lake paddling to running Class IV rapids. It’s also a significant workout, strengthening the core as well as legs, and arms.  Strap gear to a SUP board for longer adventures or bring your dog along!

It sound fun but how do you get started and keep from falling off?  How do you propel yourself forward?  And what about those waves? Happily, expert paddler Rob Casey has the answers.  Writing in a friendly and encouraging style, Casey covers everything from selecting equipment, packing your PFD, and standing up on your board, to holding your paddle for maximum efficiency and using ocean or river currents to your advantage.  He even includes pointers from professional SUP racers.
