This is one of the most common questions I’ve heard asked from beginners or those interested in trying out paddle boarding “is paddleboarding hard?” And it makes sense. You’ve just seen someone practically walking on liquid, gliding across the water. For the most part it looks fairly easy, but it also appears fairly tricky. After all, you’re standing on water, which requires balance, and self propelling yourself, which requires strength.

Paddle boarding definitely has its challenges, but how hard is paddle boarding? In short, it’s not very hard at all. Paddle boarding is one of the easiest water sports for beginners to pick up in my opinion. Look at any other water sport and the learning curve is drastically more steep. The risks are also fairly minimal in comparison as well. For instance, look at surfing. For most people, it takes multiple sessions before they are able to stand up and ride waves. And while you’re putting in that time, you’re also eating a lot of sand, and getting lost under crashing waves. It’s totally worth it when you catch that first ride, but the stakes and necessary skills are higher. [Read more…] about Is Paddleboarding Hard?
