Paddling Into Uncharted (and irresistible) Waters

Posted on

 Have you been to the beach lately?

If so, you may have noticed something attractive and curvy in the water, and you absolutely need to make sure you don’t get left behind.

I’m talking about the stand up paddleboards, of course.

Stand up paddleboard, or SUP, has caused waves on the mainstream scene in the last decade, and it now holds the potential to be one of the top adventure sports in the world. It also helps that the paddleboard community have big coultural icons like Victoria’s Secret helping with this surge in popularity, as they had their 2016 Bikini shoot featuring stunning models and the "Surfer" Stand Up Paddleboard from Imagine Surf. Known previously as an underground activity, SUP is getting a huge publicity boost and now seems to be shifting towards a more relaxing and exclusive recreation.

Also, one of the long standing superstars for Victoria’s Secret, Candice Swanepoel, has been pictured in St. Barts riding paddleboards during a break with fellow angel Behati Prinsloo.

This endorsement of SUP by some of the most influential and beautiful women in the world surely suggests the adoption of the paddleboard lifestyle as both an active and leisurely culture. The change in style seems to be paying dividends, as according to Google Trends the interest and relevance of stand up paddleboarding has soared from January of 2004 to July of 2015 by nearly 350%!

As we’re inching towards the sunny weather of spring and summer, stand up paddleboards will be perfect for everyone.
