Adventurous, brave and constantly looking for extreme thrills? You might have already tried all sorts stuff of making yourself feel the thrill and keep the adrenaline pumping, like going to amusement parks and rode some of the twisted, sick and fast roller coasters, or maybe you have tried zip lines and fly like superman or even you have tried white water rafting going downstream the thunderous rage of a six footer wave. I can say that those extreme stuff can give you what you are looking for, but the question is are they cheap thrills? What I'm saying is that you can experience the same feeling with less expense. Try Paddle Boarding, it's fun, extreme and most of all you can be one with nature, one with the ocean, a place where mystery is not yet unfold. A very relaxing place where you can meditate and experience thrill at the same time depends on your interest.

Paddle Boarding is a sport originated in Hawaii, before it was not a sport, it was way of transportation for people to move from one island to another. This painting shows these people riding their canoes and you will notice at the lower left you will see a paddle boarder/surfer.

In 1930's Paddle boarding became a recreational sport, athletes join competitions riding a traditional paddle boards but lightened to travel more distance. Today there are many types of  paddle boards for different riding styles,  there are racing paddle boards used  by athletes in competitions, and there are also cruisers designed for mellow type of riders that just want to see the view, and there are also women paddle boards and kids paddle boards.  This is because of  the sport's  continuous evolution. The diversity of the sport gives interest and enthusiasm to people who tried it.

 Now paddle boarding is another way of experiencing the thrill inexpensively. It also gives you a chance to relax and be one with the ocean, be one with nature and to further understand more why we are here in the first place.  Anyone can try paddle boarding especially kids, it is fun to be in the water and paddle boarding makes it even more fun. There are stand up paddle boards for kids that are available on the internet.

Try Paddle Boarding, be amazed and share the stoke!
