To start SUP, you need a wide board for good stability (preferably inflatable as it's easier to transport), a paddle and flat water without any wind or current..
For safety, a cord (leash) connects the board to your leg. If you fall in, the board will never be far. For added safety, you can wear a buoyancy aid. If you take your child on the board with you, they must always wear a life jacket..
When you set off for the first time, start on your knees to get your balance on the board and then stand up with your knees bent for more stability. Start paddling on one side with the blade of the paddle open to the front. Then when the board begins to turn due to the row effect, paddle on the other side by changing hands with the paddle.
And that's it, now you know how to SUP for beginners!
