There are many different factors which affect how many calories you burn with paddle board fitness, including the intensity of the workout and how much time you spend on the water.
However, on average, an hour spent casual stand up paddle boarding can burn up to 430 calories – around twice the number of calories that you’d burn by going for a stroll.
Combine SUP with yoga and you could burn around 540 calories in an hour, or take up paddle board SUP racing and you could burn almost double this amount.
When you compare these figures to other sports, it becomes clear that a day spent doing SUP fitness and training can provide a much better workout than many other activities. Going for a run burns approximately 650 calories per hour, while spending an hour on your bike only uses up around 480 calories.
