Paddle surfing: try some sport on your Ibiza sailing holiday!


If you’re a lover of the sea, you’ll no doubt have heard about paddle surfing on more than one occasion. If you haven't yet taken the plunge to try the sport, wait no longer! Here are some of the benefits of this activity, which is perfect for enjoying the calm waters of Ibiza and Formentera.

Exercise your whole body

The movements deployed on a paddle surf board involve a whole range of muscles that are required to paddle, push and generate power, all in a coordinated and skilful fashion. Abs, arms, legs… you'll exercise your whole body! And if you don't believe it, give it a try and notice how tight your muscles feel the following day.

Improve your reflexes and balance 

Paddle surfing is the perfect sport to test your reflexes, as it works on your dynamic balance. The aim is to move around with the board, of course, but above all to avoid accidental falls.

High consumption of calories 

If you want to keep fit during your holidays, you'll need to do some kind of sport... Using your paddle surf board for at least 30 minutes a day will give you the necessary calorific expenditure to be able to treat yourself to a gastronomic feast or two. Because if you visit Ibiza and Formentera, you mustn’t miss their famous beach clubs and beach restaurants!

Improves body posture

Paddle surfing is an ideal way of developing good body habits based on a posture that keeps the spine straight. This is achieved thanks to the fact that the sport requires dynamic balance at all times, as well as strengthening the reflexes so that participants remain alert and avoid falling into the water.

Strengthen your body and recover from injuries

Paddle surfing is also good for your health by aiding recovery from injury, as well as having a positive effect on your body and preventing future injuries. By maintaining an upright posture and exercising your muscles, paddle surfing keeps your body in good shape and is ideal for loosening up and relaxing your muscles after long periods of sedentary existence and stressful routines. 

Release stress and sleep better

Doing any type of cardiovascular exercise, such as paddle surfing, for at least ten minutes a day, will help you release stress and promote good sleep by activating the production of melatonin. Moreover, this sport, which is done in the open air and in a setting as paradigmatically relaxing as the sea, will help you to switch off and feel a sense of inner calm.
