Hey guys, it's Lunden, and it's a beautiful day here at Wolfgangsee.
I'm here withBerni the Salzburg Stand-Up Paddle Boarding Champion and today we're gonna teachyou how to stand-up paddleboard!Okay, so first we're gonna start off with the paddle.
So, when we're starting, obviously it's a little bit tall buthow tall do we want our stand-up paddleboarding paddle to be?It's very important to have the paddle in the right size, thatmeans you open the clip if you have a vario paddlethen you move it uplike this, for example.
- So, about a bent arm.
Reach your arm up over your headbut you don't want it all the way upbut slightly bent.
Yeah? - Exactly.
Then you close the clipand that's it.
- Cool! Alright, nowfor getting on the stand-up paddleboard: what is the.
We're gonna go over the best way to mount your stand-up paddleboardwhere you should stand for paddling as well as for turns and stufflike that.
- It's quite easy:you hop on the board, exactly, and use your paddleas a balance tool.
- And then you set one foot in front of you, the other foot followsand then stand up slowly.
After this, you take the paddle.
-This direction, right?Yes, make sure the flat side of the paddle is turned to the frontlike this.
- Got it.
- And then you grab the palmand then you start stroking.
- And how many times.
Do you just paddle on one side or do you paddle onboth sides? - It depends.
Of course, you paddle on both sides but usually youmake 5 to 7 strokes on one side.
- 5 to 7 strokes and thenswitch.
So, where I'm standing now is about center to a little bit in frontof centerof the board here.
So that's kind of a good spot to stand when you'repaddling normally.
And then when you're turning.
should we stay in the same spot?- No, you should move a little bit to the back, just1-2 steps back, then it's easier to turn the board.
Okay, so when you're turning step back just a little bit more.
Gets the nose of the board to go up a little bit higher and that way you can turnand maneuver a little bit.
Of course, when you're turning you're gonna pedalforward.
- To get the turn, right? - Exactly.
Okay, well, now we have some tips on the length of your paddle, how to mount the boardand how to paddle.
So, now we're gonna take it on water and give it a try!Something worth mentioning is that this paddleboardthat we're on, is inflatable.
So, for those of you that feel like I don'thave space for a stand-up paddleboard, maybe I don't have a vehicle that's bigenough to transport it.
these are inflatable, so you just fill them up with air and thenyou can take the air out and it's really easy to store.
So, it really is for anyone and everyoneno matter what your fitness level is.
I hope that you will decide to try outstand-up paddleboarding.
