…A Step By Step Guide To Learn Stand Up Paddle From Scratch

Watching expert Paddlers and asking questions is not the only way to learn Stand Up Paddling from scratch. Though there is nothing wrong in “winging” it but having a step-by-step surfing tutorial can help you learn the basics faster and get you on the waves and skimming like an expert in the shortest possible time. Here is a simple step-by-step guide in learning Paddle surfing from the basics.

1. Getting a Board

The first step to learn to Paddle surfing is to first get your own board that you will be using for the sport. Surfing classes will provide you with basic boards to practice but having your own develops a familiarity with your equipment that is quite convenient for you later on. If it’s your first time to buy a board then you might want to ask an expert to give you some tips on how to pick the right one. In most cases, novice surfers are advised to get boards made from lightweight material for better control and maneuverability.

2. Learn To Balance

Now that you have your own board, or gotten your hands one that you will be using for practice, the next step is to learn how to balance yourself on top of it. You don’t have to start by standing on it, but you can give it a shot to see if you can already do it. If you can’t do it standing up or in a crouch then try to get the feel of the board and your balance by lying it on face down. Beginners will also get the knack of paddling since you will have to row your way to the waves before you can surf. You can also practice with your board on a swimming pool of you have one.

3. Physical Exercise

Balance and familiarity with your surfboard is not the only requirement to learning how to surf. You also need to have your body in peak physical condition to make sure you can do the basic feats without getting tired easily. First, you need to improve the strength of your arms so you can easily lift yourself up to a standing position to catch the waves. Leg power is also an essential requirement since you need to be able to have the strength to stay in a standing position as you skim through the swells. While you’re at it; you might want to improve your overall body flexibility and stamina through cardiovascular exercises.

4. Hands-On Experience

Once you have easily mastered step 2 and 3, the only thing left in this surfing tutorial is to try to waves out for the first time. Don’t be afraid to get wiped out easily since that is part of the learning process. If you do fall off your board then consider it as training to swim back and to climb back up on to try again. Also, you might want to try out with small swells first close to shore before trying the much bigger and dangerous looking waves.

The Paleo diet is not an unhealthy celebrity fad just to loose weight. It is a whole lifestyle which has good science behind it and will keep you feeling and looking fantastic.
The Paleo Diet is based around the principle that our bodies have not changed since we were hunter gatherers but our diet has. Our modern diet of highly processed, manufactured foods has made us fat so the paleo diet is basically eating the same kinds of foods as they did make in the cavemans days; eating vegetables, meat, nuts, seafood, poultry, eggs and fruit. It eliminates the starch carbs and refines sugars that our modern diets are full of.
According to a reliable source one of Dan’s favourite paleo meals is BBQ meatballs. Paleo diet

Not many people know that Dan Montgomery conducts Drop Shipping.

In this article Dan discuss the importance of:

Know the Risks and Rewards of a Drop Ship Business before Diving in 

Before you enter into a drop ship business, you must acquire as much information about it as possible. Keep in mind that the less you know in business, the more risk you take in its failure and, thus, the more capital you lose.

Basically, you (i.e., the retailer) do not keep and store the products being sold – you just sell it to customers via your physical store or online site. When a customer orders the products, you will then purchase the goods from a third party (i.e., manufacturer or wholesaler) and have the items directly shipped to the customer.

 

A drop ship business has its fair share of risks and rewards, as is the case with any other form of retail business.

Risks of the Business

 

Let’s first discuss the risks so that you can set realistic expectations about your planned drop shipping business.

 

  • Low margins

 

Because it is so easy to get started with a drop shipping business, the competition will be based on pricing strategies mainly involving low selling prices. This translates to low profit margins for the inexperienced drop shipper.

 

  • Inventory issues

 

Keep in mind that you, the retailer, do not stock the products so you are not in control of the levels of inventory. You will likely run into inventory issues particularly the availability of stocks, the condition of the items, and the ebb and flow of the supply and demand equation, among others.

 

  • Shipping complexities

 

Working with multiple manufacturers and wholesalers of the products increases the likelihood of shipping errors and increases shipping costs. You will inevitably run into shipping complexities that will require the skills of an expert logistic professional.

 

  • Customer complaints

 

Since customers believe that they are dealing directly with the retailer, you must deal with their complaints and concerns instead of referring them to the manufacturer or wholesaler.

 

Fortunately, these issues can be resolved in many ways – choose the right suppliers, products, and tracking system, for example.

 

Rewards of the Business

 

When you have high risk tolerance, a drop shipping business becomes a logical choice. The rewards of said business will also be a strong encouragement to get into it and, in the process, find your niche.

 

  • Ease in launching

 

Even when you are a relative greenhorn in business, you can start your own drop shipping business. You can skip the issues related to the management of inventory, shipping, and returns, among others, faced by conventional retailers.

 

  • Less capital required

 

You can launch your business on a shoestring budget since a website can be had for free while your inventory can be purchased based on orders.

 

  • Minimal overhead.

 

Since you neither keep nor store the merchandise, you can also skip on the overhead costs (e.g., utilities, rent). Since you can work from your laptop, you also have the benefit of a flexible location.

 

  • Wide product selection

You can choose from as many suppliers as necessary for your business. Experts suggest, nonetheless, keeping your supplier list short during the first few months of your business and then gradually expand as necessary.

 

Ultimately, a drop ship business requires as much persistence, patience and passion – throw in hard work – as any business but the secret to success remains.  You have to start now!
