SUPboarder Challenges

It's your turn to get involved in our new SUPboarder Challenges! Don't stop sUPskilling.

In a new way to improve your technique, we have embarked on bringing you SUP challenges so you can have fun on the water and also step outside of your comfort zone a little bit. There are some SUPboarder Goodies up for grabs for those that post their attempts on social media using #supboarderchallenge

The first challenge is a Cross Step Challenge which requires you to cross step (or shuffle) your feet all the way to the nose of your board and back to the tail. This technique focuses on using the centre line of your board and teaches you how the board reacts to where you stand. Finding the centre line means you understand the balance point of the board and can move into the realm of surf stance which will aid with paddling in bumpy waters, downwind paddling and of course SUP surfing.

 

The second challenge is a paddling on one foot challenge which requires you to paddle for as long as you can whilst standing on one foot. This challenge focuses on using the centre line of your board and teaches you how the board reacts to where you stand. Finding the centre line means you understand the balance point of the board and can move into the realm of surf stance which will aid with paddling in bumpy waters, downwind paddling and of course SUP surfing.

 

 

The third challenge is to see how many step back turn spins you can do in 30 seconds. This challenge uses both the previous challenges by focussing on using the centre line of your board and walking to the tail. This teaches you how the board reacts to where you stand and helps you to move into the realm of surf stance which will aid with paddling in bumpy waters, downwind paddling and of course SUP surfing.

Remember to share your attempts on our social media channels Facebook (SUPboarder Magazine) & Instagram (@supboardermag) using #supboarderchallenge and tag us to enter the draw for some SUPboarder goodies.

We will be choosing our favourite attempts (not necessarily the best, so get creative)!

We can’t wait to see some of your challenge attempts. This cross step challenge will prepare you well for the future challenges coming out roughly each week. We will also be posting our own attempts online so make sure to check out how we did and also some funny bloopers.

Good Luck & Have Fun!
