Most people wonder how they will ever keep their balance on a Stand Up Paddle Board. I promise, it’s not as complicated as it might seem! First of all, you do not start off standing on the board. A simple kneeling stance is the best way to start learning how to keep your balance on the SUP board. The kneeling position will help your muscles to gain stability on the board; as your thighs, glutes, abs, shoulders and back muscles are all engaged in this activity.
