By paddling around on a surfboard, you will get to enjoy the ocean, the sun and if you live in a reef-populated area, you can check out what is underneath where you normally surf. By far the coolest aspect of the surfboard is the paddle.

The benefits of the Aqua-Bound surf paddle

  • The stand-up paddle provides you with an excellent overall workout. It makes use of balance and strength in order to remain upright and propel you in the water.
  • The stand-up paddle provides you with a great core workout as well. It works almost every muscle in the body
  • It provides a very low impact exercise. Therefore, it is unlikely that you will do damage to the tendons and ligaments of your joints.
  • Helps to release stress
  • It's a ton of fun

The Aqua-Bound stand-up paddle helps increase your speed, but the real fun comes in using it to surf. The surfboard I used was big and hard to maneuver and many women and men surfers I have met have made similar comments to me as well. However, when you dig the Aqua-Bound paddle in to the water, you create a pivot point that allows you change direction quickly. Many surfers do this with their hands when surfing, but the Aqua-Bound paddle allows you a much larger range at faster speed.

You can put it in the water on the inside of a cutback to pivot quickly or you can put it into the face to stall. You can go over shoulder, under the elbow, through the armpit in a squat position and it helps you do many other positions that you balance, maneuver and increase your speed.

There is a ton of style and versatility to using the stand-up paddle and it is new enough that cool ways are being discovered all the time. On the Aqua-Bound website they show you a lot of cool photography and content that gives you great instruction and guidance on different ways to utilize the stand-up paddle and how to choose the right one.

I thought the stand-up paddle was great and from the ones I tried in the past I thought the quality and performance of this stand-up paddle was by far the best. I loved the grip on the paddle made it so comfortable and easy to use. It was super light and wasn’t heavy and weighed you down like a couple I tried in the past and the large blade at the end grabbed more water which made it helped go further at a quicker speed than I was used too. I also loved how well it was made. It was not flimsy; it is high-quality equipment. In addition, I loved the style of the paddle. It was hip, bright and stood out from all the others that I noticed while surfing. I even got a few awesome comments and I was asked twice on where I bought it.

I ordered it on the Internet. It came quickly, packaged well and when I tried it, I was very impressed and satisfied with the stand-up board. I would definitely recommend this stand-up paddle to others.
