A highly popular activity worldwide, paddle boarding or stand-up paddle boarding (SUP) is a fantastic way to keep fit and healthy for young and older participants. Of course, when engaging in a new activity, it is important to familiarise yourself with safety regulations and essential equipment (such as a buoyancy aid) that must be worn to ensure that you remain protected when out on the water.

SUPs are incredibly versatile forms of watersports equipment and can be used for a number of activities. From SUP surfing to SUP fishing, SUP racing and more, the only limit is your imagination. Paddle boarding has rapidly grown in popularity, largely owing to its mental health benefits - scientific studies show that simply being near bodies of water can reduce anxiety and depression. This, paired with the widely known benefits of exercise, make paddle boarding an excellent boost for your mental and physical health.

When paddleboarding, you'll want a floatation device which is unrestrictive and provides maximum freedom of movement, which is why Spinlock Wing PFD 50N Buoyancy Aid is such a popular choice. Wing has a low profile design with a tapered high cut and a snug fit which reduces resistance, making it perfect for paddle boarding.

A great alternative is Spinlock Alto 75N Belt Pack - a lightweight, compact floatation device that's worn around the waist and works similarly to a manual life jacket. Alto feels almost invisible and when the manual toggle is pulled, releases an inflatable tube which supports you under your arms and around your chest.
