The water sport is an amazing work out and is a celebrity favourite with stars like Kate Hudson and Jennifer Aniston.
Granted, these gals all live near much warmer waters than us, but those who are happy to don a wetsuit, or people who want to keep fit on their holidays - let us explain.
What is paddle boarding?
Paddle boarding is a demanding sport where you stand up on a heavy board and use paddles to propel yourself along in the water.
Battling the elements, waves and currents, it is a seriously good work out.
You have to be ridiculously slick to pull of paddle boarding with a cigar - we also would not recommend this as part of a get fit regime.
Why the stars love paddle boarding
It demands the muscles in your arms, back and glutes work super hard, whilst you need a certain amount of flexibility in your hips and back.
Trying to balance on the board will engage your core muscles whilst those bingo wings get a good workout through being in charge of the paddles.
It is a great sport for cardio endurance and can burn up to 700 calories an hour.
