We all know the feeling, you are the proud owner of a new kayak or SUP. You want to get on the water immediately. But you have to be careful to not get in over your head. You have to know your limits.
When you take your SUP out for it’s first test run, you have two choices. You can find a nice calm spot of water to get used to your new board, or you can take it directly to the waves. To practice safer paddling, you must know your limits.
“This is Larry. Larry is a standup paddling enthusiast. Larry has something to prove.
Often Larry’s confidence exceeds his abilities, which can lead to problems, leaving Larry unprepared for his recreational paddling experience.
For Larry, one choice makes all the difference. Excellent choice, Larry. Always know your limits.”
If you are not a seasoned paddler, it’s safer to find a spot of calm water and get used to your new board. The video above is fun, but the point is serious. If you don’t know your limits, you could end up in serious trouble.
Know your limits before you hit the water.
