How to carry a paddleboard
  • To carry a paddleboard to the water:
    • Lift one side of the paddleboard.
    • Put your arm over the rail and grab the board’s handle or hand well.
    • Bend your knees to lift the board and put it under your arm.
    • Carry the paddle with your other hand.
  • If your board is too heavy for you to carry alone, use the two-person carry.
    • One person holds the nose of the board.
    • The other person holds the tail of the board behind the fin to avoid getting cut.
