New Exercise Idea: Land Paddling

Kahuna Creations: Land PaddlingSkateboarding has been around for over thirty years. Longboards are skateboards that are bigger and react more like a surfboard on the road. These are both great exercise and give you an awesome lower body workout. If you want to add an upper body workout, now there is Land Paddling.

Kahuna Creations has invented the Big Stick, which allows you to paddle along the street on your longboard. You can still move using your feet like a skateboard, but the Big Stick gives you the option of working your arms, back, abs and chest.

Here is a video showing it in motion:

For all of you out there who are financially challenged, you can probably create something like this on your own. As soon as the snow melts off the sidewalks and the streets, you can get out there and enjoy a whole new way to exercise!

    If I had the coordination I would get one. That looks so cool.

    P.S they need to wear helmets.

    I’ve been skateboarding and volunteering at a skatepark for the last 4-5 years! I love it! And i love the way my legs feel after I go hard… a great alternative workout!

    Yeah I just recently checked this out and I love it! It’s such a great workout. They even make Big Sticks for little kids too so you can do it as a family! Totally rocks!

    Six months ago I started land paddling a couple of km’s two or three times a week. Worked up to 25km on weekends with two half-hour sessions during the week. Awesome cardio workout, real adrenaline rush.
