2. Paddleboarding is one of the fastest-growing sports in America

The number of paddle boarders in the US is increasing at a rapid rate. In 2015, there were 2.6 million participants in paddleboarding, an increase of 11.7 percent over the year before. This number grew another 10 percent by 2020.

This growth has been fueled by increased awareness of the sport through social media and marketing campaigns, as well as more availability of equipment and classes across all age groups.

Paddleboarding it's a fun, low-impact workout that allows you to enjoy time on the water while getting a great cardio workout.

Nowadays, there are an estimated 10 million paddleboarders worldwide, with the largest population in the US. This is followed by Europe, where there are approximately 5 million paddleboarders.

3. Paddleboarding was born in the US

Paddleboarding has been around since the dawn of time, but it wasn't until the mid-20th century that we started to see what we'd recognize today. It all started in Hawaii, where surfing was born and perfected.

The modern iteration of paddleboarding began in Hawaii in the mid-20th century. The first races were held in the 1960s, and the popularity of paddleboarding grew through the 1970s and 1980s. It was particularly popular in Hawaii, California, and Florida during this period.

The sport, now considered an Olympic event, was first developed by surfers who wanted to explore the ocean without drowning or getting caught up in dangerous waves.

4. An outdoor sport for everyone

Paddleboarding is an activity that anyone can enjoy. You can go solo or with friends, in lakes, rivers, and even oceans if you have the experience enough in large bodies of water.

This water sport is great for enjoying outdoors like never before and having fun with friends or family members all year round. 

Another reason why people of all ages can paddleboard is that stand-up paddleboarding is a great way to stay in shape. The exercise you get from paddling is similar to other water sports like kayaking and canoeing but without the need for a motor or wind.

Paddleboarding is also easier on your joints than running. This makes it an excellent fitness option if you're looking for something new or just want to add a cardio variety to your workout routine.
