Several recommendations to correctly play with the inflatable stand up paddle board. Rinse your SUP before putting it in storage. Whenever you use your SUP you’ll want to rinse it with freshwater afterwards. It’s good to get into the habit of rinsing off your board after each use because getting rid of dirt and grit can extend its lifespan. It also prevents you from having to clean your board before you head out next time. SUP is an outdoor sport so a certain amount of mud is expected, but with a good spray down after each time out you’ll keep your paddle board in action over the long-term. Pay special attention to the area around your valve to keep it clean and working smoothly.
A good place to start is to figure out the dimensions of an inflatable SUP you’ve tried that felt good and was easy for you. Use that as a baseline of what you know you can paddle. This should give you an idea if the board was way too stable or not stable enough, then you can make judgments based off that. Demo or renting is the best way to get an idea about what type of board you want and also as great way to gauge what size you can handle. A very common size inflatable SUP for an average 180lb male who is intermediate would look something like 10′ x 32? x 220L (Like the Pakaloa SUP) and a very common size inflatable SUP for an average 125lb female would be 9’6? x 31? x 196L.
Works the whole body: This is a brilliant advantage of paddle boarding, because your whole body gets a good workout, and most of the time you don’t even realize it. The simple act of walking in to the water with your SUP and balancing on it gives your muscles a workout, and then you have the paddling on top. Let’s look at how the different parts of the body are used when paddling.

One more inflatable stand up paddle board advice: Fall off your board the right way: Even the pros fall off so this is always going to be a part of your stand up paddle boarding. What is important through, is how you fall. Just like you can practice tricks and wave riding, practicing falls or at least being aware of how to fall and fall safely can ensure your session is not cut short by injury. Paddle boards are big and can hurt when they hit you, when you fall, you want to fall away from your board. Don’t worry, you’re attached to it with your leash and it won’t go away, but falling well clear of the board will let you fall gracefully into water without falling on the board or the fins. This is especially important in any location with current or waves as the board will move independently of your input.
