Sup Safety Gear
Paddle boarding is an inherently dangerous activity if steps arenít taken to insure your own safety and the safety of others. There are many types of paddle board safety gear out there.
The most important piece of paddle board safety gear is a PFD. The U.S. Coast Guard classifies a paddle board as a vessel, being classified as a vessel requires you to have a PFD and signaling device on your board at all times.
SUP gear also includes a board leash so if you fall off your board it will still stay near you. Donít forget
for your paddle or fishing rod so you donít lose either of them if you were to drop them while standup paddleboarding. Having the proper pieces of SUP gear can make your paddle board experience much more enjoyable. Making sure to have all the paddle board safety gear when you are a beginner is even more important because if something goes wrong and you donít have the proper paddle board safety gear you risk injury or even death.
Paddle boards can be awkward when transporting them, make sure to always have the paddle board above the ground so you donít scratch or dent your board. We offer a set of carry straps to aid in transporting your paddle board. The over the shoulder straps help people who canít otherwise lift a board without the help of another person transport their paddle board.
SUP gear also includes things like coolers, water bottles, fishing poles or any other gear you bring on your board. It doesn't always have to be paddle board safety gear.
Paddle board safety gear also includes
like anchors, whittles, first aid kits, and any other items youíd consider having onboard in case of an emergency. Having these items with you, even if you never use them is a great idea.
Sup Training wheels and SUP stabilizers are also part of SUP gear and paddle board safety gear. They are used for both adding extra stability and also can be used if you need to get out of a dangerous place and you donít feel comfortable on your board. Training wheel stabilizers are a great piece of SUP gear to always have with you even if it doesnít seem like you need them to SUP.
