Inventor's Description and sketches

2ft. Skimboard shape. Taking care of the need for balance (on trucks possibly similar to skateboards) Attached to the trucks, tube shaped anchoring feet coming out both sides and front and rear for stability. Oar handles can be centered on resistance bands between front and rear feet.(or possibly belt driven for adjustable resistance). The oar handles have twist off sections for different workouts and heights of the users, plus a twist off base for easy storage. I have another design as well. Its with a hard plastic board and a design which is more cost effective.

How is Paddleboarding such a Workout?

Paddleboarders don't ride waves standing up the way surfers do: They simply paddle. Either lying prone or kneeling on their 12- to 18-foot craft, paddlers move through the water using only their arms for locomotion. The sport conditions not only the arm muscles, but also the back, the abdomen and the legs, which must stay engaged to keep the board from tipping.

Since paddleboarding has scant marketing and no publications to tout it, news of its benefits has traveled mostly through word of mouth. Proponents say what paddleboarding lacks in sex appeal and ease of access, it makes up in quality of workout.

Whereas surfers' sessions are punctuated with short bursts of paddling and interminable waits, paddleboarders are engaged in nonstop conditioning. On boards that skim through the water with ease, paddlers often head out when the wind is down, looking for smooth water that allows them to build momentum.
