Stand-up paddle boarding (SUP) is an offshoot of surfing from Hawaii that has seen a huge spike in popularity. The larger board size makes for easier balance, and it’s a great alternative to kayaking.

1. As surfers do, wear a leash so if you fall off, your board stays close.
2. Dig deep and plant your paddle.
3. Submerge your paddle blade, extend your arms, and use your core to pull the paddle along the board’s rail. Take it out at your feet, not the tail of your board.
4. Look up! It’s a must for good balance, especially if you’re riding waves: focus on the horizon.
