Summer may be over, but except for you diehards and warm weather dwellers, there is no need for the SUP season to end. From Kahuna Creations comes the Kahuna Stick, which is essentially a land paddle for your skateboard. Designed to be used with a longboard, the Kahuna Stick features a long curved rubber end with which the rider pushes themselves along in a motion similar to Stand Up Paddleboarding. The same core muscles are used and similar to SUP, it’s a great workout. Check out this VIDEO for a little demo.
Now this does require a bit more coordination than with Stand Up Paddleboarding, and falling on pavement is not as forgiving as falling in the water. However, the stick is designed to be used with a longboard, which is much more stable than a regular skateboard. Kahuna has longboards up to 59″ (almost the size of a small surfboard!), that are over a foot wide and pretty steady underfoot.
So if you’re feeling adventurous and missing those SUP days of summer, this is a great way to get outdoors and enjoy that paddling sensation in the cooler months when the water might not be so inviting.
