With this, it is possible to perform a low or high intensity aerobic workout, focused on strength and muscular endurance, using a stronger paddling or a larger paddle, or even paddling against wind or current.
Stand Up Paddle surfing is recommended to various age groups and various types of physical condition.
It is also possible to do intercalated workouts (varying high and low intensity), based on parameters such as speed (using for example a specific GPS) or even using a heart monitor, in order to achieve better results in terms of aerobic condition.
