At Blue Planet we have taught thousands how to Stand Up Paddle board. We have every possible beginner mistake but here is our lineup of the top 10 most common SUP mistakes:
#10: Holding the paddle backwards and hands too close together
#9: Using only the tip of the blade and not reaching forward
#8: Holding paddle diagonally and too far away from board
#7: Falling onto the board instead of into the water
#6: Looking down instead of forward
#5: Kicking under the board when trying to get back on
#4: Not centering weight on board
#3: Drifting with the wind and not controlling the direction
#2: Going out in dangerous conditions and/or with the wrong gear
#1: Not wearing a leash

We go into detail on how to correct each of these mistakes and how it will help you develop good habits and efficient paddle technique.

Special thanks to DJ for providing the no leash footage at 10:20. Check out more of DJ’s great downwind videos here:
