Episodio 1 con Martin Teichmann

Possiamo approfittare dei molti anni di esperienza (di allenamento) di Martin che condivide i suoi consigli e trucchi per iniziare a praticare lo stand-up paddle board. Evitare gli errori e divertirsi fin dall'inizio è l'obiettivo!

Abbiamo riassunto i consigli di Martin per voi qui di seguito.

1) Scegliete l'acqua giusta! Standing or barely flowing waters are optimal because they have little current. Also, always pay attention to the wind conditions! Never go out on the water when the wind is offshore, as it will pull you away from the shore, which is especially dangerous in the ocean.

2) Fate attenzione alla vostra sicurezza! On still waters or when there is little current, use a leash! It is the connection between you and the board. Watch out on flowing water! There is a possibility that the leash get caught and you will be pulled under water!

Always have a buoyancy aid like Restube or a PFD with you! At some waters it is even compulsory to wear a PFD at a certain distance from the shore, e.g. at Lake Constance. Therefore, make sure you know the local regulations!

3) Informatevi e conoscete le regole! Inform yourself about the SUP sport and familiarize yourself with the rules! The 10 golden rules of the 'Associazione tedesca SUP are a good basic knowledge. 

4) Know how to fall! 
If you fall, fall flat into the water. This way you can minimise the risk of hurting yourself.

5) Take a course and avoid mistakes! Start with a course! This way you avoid mistakes and have fun with stand-up paddling from the beginning!

 Thank you very much, dear Martin!
