Stand Up Paddle Boards Guide
March 21st, 2007 -- Stand up paddle surfing is currently
all the rage in the surfboard world. When surfing at most
of the popular spots in Hawaii, seeing surfers paddling into
waves with carbon paddles is hardly uncommon nowadays. Many
swear that stand up paddle boards provide the ultimate cross
training for tradional paddle in surfing by strengthing the
core muscles which greatly improve strength and balance.
Laird Hamilton popularized stand up paddle surfing a while
ago and now, a large number of shapers offer at least one
type of stand up paddle board model. Even Al Merrick, normally
known for his high performance shortboards and world titles
has produced a somewhat strange but unique stand up fish surfboard.
Rob Machado swears by it and claims that it is the best performing
paddle board out there today.
