Stand Up Paddling Workout

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

We keep hearing that stand up paddling is a great workout for your body, especially for your core muscles. To prove it Surftech took par tin the 2008 Ford Iron man event held in Tempe,Arizona where they let the athletes test a couple of their stand up paddle surfboards. For many of them, Surftech’s involvement in the event was their first introduction to stand up paddling. And the response? “It’s an amazing workout”, comments Heather Fuhr, 2008 Ironman Hall of Fame inductee, “You’re just working your core the whole time”. “It’s so much fun, and such a great workout!”, commented Megan Flanagan of Austin Texas who won her age group in Tempe in her first ever Iron man event. “ I can’t wait to get a stand up board back home to train on”.
