Stand up paddleboarding has taken a big flight in recent years, as more and more people discover the awesome feeling of being upright on a board at all times! Since SUPers spend most of their time above the water’s surface, the main elements they have to con-tend with are possible wind chill and often intense sun rays, while water temperature is much less of a deciding factor. When choosing a wetsuit or skin protection for stand up paddleboarding, take a close look at the climate you’ll be paddling in. If you’re extending your season from early spring to late fall, you might want to look at a full suit of thin to medium thickness; if you’re sticking to summer paddling in a warm climate, it’s a great idea to add on an UV protective lycra shirt to your regular summer wear.
