Water is a wonderful, but can be unpredictable.
Water is a wonderful element that can bring us joy, relaxation and fun. But water can also be dangerous, especially when we are on a sup board. A sup board is a great way to enjoy the water, but it also requires some skills, precautions and awareness. In this blog post, we will share with you some tips on how to stay safe on a sup board, especially if you have kids with you.

First of all, you should always wear a life jacket or a buoyancy aid when you are on a sup board. Even if you are a good swimmer, you never know when you might fall into the water or encounter a strong current or wave. A life jacket can save your life and keep you afloat until you can get back on your board or reach the shore.

Secondly, you should always check the weather and water conditions before you go out on a sup board. Avoid going out in stormy, windy or foggy weather, as these can make the water unpredictable and dangerous. Also, avoid going out in areas with strong currents, tides or waves, as these can make it hard to control your board and balance. Choose a calm and clear spot where you can see the bottom and the shore.

Thirdly, you should always be careful with kids on a sup board. Kids love to play on the water, but they also need to be supervised and protected. If you are taking kids on a sup board, make sure they wear a life jacket and a helmet. Also, make sure they stay close to you and do not wander off or fall into the water. You can also attach a leash to your board and your kid's board, so that they do not drift away from you.

Finally, you should always have fun on a sup board, but also be respectful of other people and animals on the water. Do not go too fast or too close to other people or boats, as this can cause accidents or injuries. Do not disturb or harm any wildlife that you might encounter, such as fish, birds or turtles. Enjoy the beauty and tranquility of the water, but also leave it as clean and pristine as you found it.

We hope these tips will help you have a safe and enjoyable time on a sup board. Water is a precious resource that we should cherish and protect. Remember: always be careful, especially with kids!
