History of Paddle Boarding
It originated in Hawaii back in the sixties as a training technique for surfing.
Since then its has grown as a sport in its own right due in no small part to the fact that’s its easier for people to get used to with a small learning curve.
You also don’t need to be waiting for a day when the waves are good as even on a calm day you can get on your board.
You just go along at whatever speed you wish taking in all the fabulous surroundings.
