What’s SUP?

29th June 2023 12:00 BST


During the 2023 RigRun Cup Challenge, competitors took on all kinds of physical activity to earn points for their teams, including a range of watersports. In particular, Stand-Up Paddle Boarding (SUP) has become a popular choice in recent years – a sport that life-long ocean enthusiast Leanne Bird knows all about.     

In this informative webinar, Leanne will dive into his extensive watersport experience to chat all things SUP, including: 

  • How it can help tone your body and relax your mind  
  • How it can help improve your cardiovascular health and endurance 
  • How it complements other types of exercise and can maximise your overall sports performance 
  • How to get started with SUP and stay safe on the water  

Whether you’ve never even heard of SUP, you need a gentle nudge to finally take the plunge, or you’re a paddle-boarding pro, Leanne’s expert advice will have you ready to get on board!
