This pose opens the back, shoulders and chest. Make sure you position the lower back over the handle so you are central on the board. The modified version of this pose is with the knees bent and feet firmly on the board hip distance apart. The arms are bent at 90 degrees with the forearm is flat on the board…

Not for the faint hearted! Make sure you only try this pose if you are competent with it on land because, on water, it’s definitely more challenging! The positioning of the hands is key to having a strong, stable foundation. Hands are placed parallel evenly on each side of the handle on the centre of the board. The best tips…

Phalakasana - Plank Pose - Beginner

This is a good pose for beginners as it is low to gravity and a relatively stable SUP Yoga pose. It’s perfect for building shoulder, arm and core strength.

They have a range of options available, all of them wind and waterproof.

F-One SUP Peak Vario Carbon

As with all the F-One gear I’ve seen, be it kite or SUP, this is an incredibly well-finished piece of equipment. There is a smart sheen finish on the lower half of the shaft, and then the upper half uses what they call ‘anti-skid’ which is a matte finish, presumably for choking down during your stroke.

RRD C.O.T.A.N. Classic
