Siesta Key Paddleboard Time!

By |September 25th, 2013|Categories: Blog|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

SUP w/ Studio Rubylake on Siesta Key. Stand Up PaddleboardStand Up Paddleboarding,(SUP), is quickly becoming one of the most popular sports on Siesta Key! Recently, I decided to try paddle boarding myself. I wanted to be able to share a first- hand experience with our interested Tropical Beach Resort guests. Let me start by saying, I don’t think anyone would use the word “athletic†when describing me, and I can’t ever recall being referred to as graceful in my lifetime. Don’t get me wrong, I like to play outside and have fun… but I was seriously wondering if I would be falling off my SUP in the first five minutes. I called a couple of my friends (also fun- loving middle-aged women) that had never gone paddle boarding before and asked them if they would take a leap of faith, grab a couple boards, and hit the calm beautiful Sarasota waters with me while we made a video. We decided to take a popular Siesta Key instructor with us on this journey who quickly taught us the ins and outs of SUP, and offered to give us a private Pilates class on the water. Courtney Kees, from Studio RubyLake, immediately put us at ease, and we began to trust very quickly that we had a pretty good chance of staying on our boards. One of the first things I noticed was how spectacular our views were as we were standing up tall, spotting dolphins. I found my experience to be exciting and yet peaceful at the same time. It dawned on me that this was actually a really great way to get a super overall workout. Paddle boarding makes us use our balance and strength to remain upright while we propel ourselves in the water. This means that we are truly using almost every muscle at some point while still being gentle on our bodies. (Taking it easy on the joints and knees, thank-you!) Cardio fitness is said to greatly improve with SUP, and although I have not been doing it long enough to confirm this, I can confirm that it’s a great core workout and has helped me increase my balance. My girlfriends and I really loved practicing Pilates on our boards. It definitely added some extra balance to the activity. The ambiance of being on the water along with the sunshine made the experience feel a lot more like fun than exercise. […]
