HOW TO STAND UP PADDLE WITH CHILDREN?
As you know, any initiation to SUP requires good preparation, especially with children. Your young apprentice must be able to swim and coordinate his/her movements (5 years), be equipped with a life jacket and the right sun protection (sunglasses, hat, even an anti-UV t-shirt).
It’s best to place your child on your SUP—as long as he/she is small—while you are paddling. Through this gentle approach, your little ones can become familiar with the water, feel the pleasures of gliding and try to stand on the board by your side. If your child has a snorkelling mask, they can even grasp the chance to observe the underwater world. If they want to give stand up paddling, or SUP a try, just adjust your paddle into the appropriate size and give out a couple of beginners tips... You will be surprised how fast they pick it up!
