Welcome to YOB Australias’ new website.
YOB Australia is a family owned business specializing in the fantastic sport of Standup Paddleboarding ( or SUP).
The modern form of this amazingly captivating sport is said to have its’ roots in Hawaiian surfing history. In the early 60’s, Hawaiian locals would use an outrigger canoe paddle standing on their long boards to maneuver themselves whilst taking photo’s of tourists learning to surf. Even in Australia at around the same time, a few Aussie surfers used paddles on their long boards, much like we see the sport today.
With modern materials and design, the products we use today are so light, strong and durable, that the sport is accessable to people with a wide range of fitness levels and body types.
Standup Paddleboarding has such a diverse range of appeal to cater for individual requirements from all age groups and walks of life. This can be as simple as a solitary early morning paddle to watch the sun rise over a still waterway, a paddle with the kids around protected reefs and bays taking advantage of your elevated viewing level to spot all manner of underwater marine life, and then on to a cardio workout, or even catching those rolling waves at your local beach or the pitching world class waves of the South West, and even compete against the worlds’ best paddlers in the local “Freo Doctor” down wind paddle race. It’s all available to you with a standup paddleboard ( and paddle).
The fitness benefits with SUP are immense. Even on a gentle cruise, you are giving your core muscle group a fairly serious work out ! Up the output and you are giving your whole body a low impact cardiovascular workout, as well as targeting thighs, abs and arms. But the best part is – it’s actually totally enjoyable !!
