We all know the feeling, you are the proud owner of a new kayak or SUP. You want to get on the water immediately. But you have to be careful to not get in over your head. You have to know your limits.

When you take your SUP out for it’s first test run, you have two choices. You can find a nice calm spot of water to get used to your new board, or you can take it directly to the waves. To practice safer paddling, you must know your limits.

Know your limits before you hit the water.
