SUP Tips: How to Properly Fall of a Stand Up Paddleboard

About to wipeout? Ride safe & enjoy more time on the water with this handy guide by Sean Poynter – SUP Tips: How to Properly Fall Off a Stand Up Paddleboard.


  1. Fall away from the board – further is safer
  2. Fall flat – lead with your butt, not your head
  3. Use your hands to protect your head – don’t grab the board, rather push it way
  4. Have the paddle handle leading through the water – this will save your arm and the paddle getting ripped from your hand
