Seoul, Korea, August 16 (Korea Bizwire) – With hot weather forecast to continue into early September, many women and men are working out and managing their body figures. However, it is not easy exercising in the hot outdoors and repeated routines can get boring.
Now, more people are taking up paddleboarding as a new and fun way to exercise. Paddleboarding is a new water sport which first became popular among celebrities on the beaches of Waikiki and Miami. Paddleboarding has become popular in Korea with TV shows displaying celebrities trying out these boards.
Paddlers get on the paddleboard and use paddles to get around on the open sea. Paddlers also have begun to enjoy surfing, fishing, and even yoga on these boards. Paddleboarding takes a lot of exercise because paddlers have to maintain balance on the board, while paddling around also requires a lot of energy. Furthermore, ‘YogAqua’ or doing yoga on the board has established itself as a popular hobby for women around the world.
In Korea there are not many places to enjoy surfing because there are not enough waves near the shores. This is no longer a problem with paddleboarding, and there are various online clubs, such as ‘Club Yachtie (http://clubyachtie.com)’, that offer paddleboarding, ‘YogAqua,’ and surfing programs for free. People looking for a new summer activity can easily choose a program closest to them.
