While standup paddling has a reputation for being easy to learn, that notion can be deceiving. As this entertaining video proves, SUP is not as easy as it looks. Whether in flatwater or waves, taking a tumble or two is just part of the game. So next time you take a spill, just remember your paddling compatriots from this video. Even the pros fall from time-to-time and there’s nothing to be ashamed of. Though remember to always wear your PFDs and leashes, so that an innocent fall doesn’t become something more serious. In the meantime, have a laugh and enjoy this standup paddling blooper reel.
