As you know, any initiation to SUP requires good preparation, especially with children. Your young apprentice must be able to swim and coordinate his/her movements (5 years), be equipped with a life jacket and the right sun protection (sunglasses, hat, even an anti-UV t-shirt).
If you have a longboard (more than 12 feet, or 3.5-meters long), it’s best to place your child on your SUP—as long as she is small—while you are paddling. Through this gentle approach, your little ones can become familiar with the water, feel the pleasures of gliding, and try to stand on the board by your side.
But how do you get two people on a stand-up paddleboard? Ask your child to get closer to the center of the board so as not to unbalance it, and to lean back on your knees if necessary.
