Check out downwind SUP paddlboarding at Indian Rocks Beach. Cold? Windy? Waves? Perfect. Downwind paddleboarding is a full-body workout and can be a great way to stay active while enjoying the outdoors. It requires a combination of strength, endurance, and balance, making it a challenging and rewarding activity. Paddleboarding is also a low-impact exercise, making it easy on the joints and suitable for people of all ages.
To get started with downwind paddleboarding, it is essential to have the right equipment. A paddleboard, paddle, and personal flotation device (PFD) are the basic essentials. It is also recommended to wear appropriate clothing and sun protection, and to always check the weather and water conditions before heading out. Saturday downwind SUP paddlboardingwe we had 40 degree air temps and 63 degree water. Winds were at 20mph gust to 30. So, a bit of a challenging adventure. Had us thinking we were out of shape. LOL. High winds, big, hammering waves, the ocean, and no motor tend to do that.
