FOOT PLACEMENT ON YOUR SUP
Proper posture and foot placement ensure you balance and control your paddleboard with ease. If you stand far backward or forward on your paddleboard, it will be harder to gain momentum and stay balanced while paddling. So, where should you stand? The best spot is at the middle point, although you can stand further back if you have another passenger on your paddleboard to distribute the weight evenly. If you want to determine the center of your board, look for a carry handle because it is always located at the center of your board.
It would help if you placed your feet width apart on either side of the carry handle, angle your feet slightly from a parallel position, and avoid gripping your toes to the deck pack to avoid losing balance. Remember to distribute your weight evenly when paddling to maintain balance and control your paddleboard easily.
