Stress and anxiety can be a part of your life no matter your age. But luckily, paddle boarding can be as well!

Once upon a time, people would max out their lifespan at the ripe age of 25-30. Nowadays, certain individuals reach the respectable age of 100, but everyone who lives to see those triple digits has something in common: they stay regularly active and keep their stress to a minimum. The healthier your lifestyle, the more likely you are to reach a higher age. Paddle boarding is a sport that can be taken up by anyone, of any age and ability. Who could really believe in that old saying, ‘You can’t teach an old dog new tricks’, when we’ve gone for lessons with plenty of people in their 60’s, 70’s and even 80’s!
