Why take paddle board lessons in Brighton?
It may not be the first thing that springs to mind when you think of a sport, but stand-up paddleboarding is a great way to stay fit and healthy. The benefits of paddleboarding are many, and it’s one of the best sports for keeping in shape. But before you head out onto the water alone, it’s important to know what you’re doing.
Here are some reasons why we recommend taking paddle board lessons in Brighton before hitting the water:
Whether you’re new to paddleboarding or have years of experience, accidents can happen at any time. Taking a lesson ensures that you know how to stay safe on the water. You’ll learn about the right gear for different weather conditions, how to read the water, and what to do if you fall in.
You’ll pick up better technique
Paddleboarding is easy – it’s just like walking on water! However, there’s a huge difference between paddling around slowly and actually going somewhere fast. If you want to get anywhere in less than an hour, it pays to learn what you’re doing from an expert.
You’ll get fit faster
Paddleboarding is great for getting into shape – but only if you do it properly. If you’re using bad technique or have poor posture then you may actually end up with an injury. To avoid the risk of injury a paddle board lesson will help show you the proper technique.
See the sites from the water!
You can take paddle board lessons in a lot of places across the UK but Brighton has something special about it. On a busy summers day getting on the water and escaping the crowds is a great feeling, you’ll also get a different perspective of Brighton’s amazing city scape.
