Stand-Up Paddling is the fastest growing ocean sport. It is a no-impact sport that will give you a strong 'core' work out. It's fun, east to learn, accessable to everyone, and without a doubt, the best way to explore St. Croix from the water.
To learn to paddle surf, you need a board - these generally average between 9 and 12ft in length - and a paddle. Your instructor will outfit you with the correct board and paddle according to your height and weight. In regular surfing, you catch a wave and attempt to hop up on the board while on the wave. Not so with stand-up paddling. Because the goal is simply to stand up on the board and propel yourself forward using the paddle, flat water is a fine playing field for Stand-Up Paddlers and there‘s no pressure to catch a wave. Most people are paddling in flat water after just 30 minutes. But as with any water sport, before you go it alone, be aware of your swimming ability and comfort level in the water.
