Really boring generic training programme - you could replace 'bike' with SUP and it would be no different.

HASH(0x9cf93528) out of 5 stars Great Resource for Paddlers 11 April 2013
By Stingray - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
There has been literally nothing published on training theory for Stand-Up and prone paddleboarding, so that in and of itself, makes this unique book worthwhile looking into. But where so many "training" books are loosely veiled promo pieces to get you to pay some coach "to learn the real secrets" this book is amazingly thorough and complete.
The core of their training regime is based around periodized training and target heart rate zones. This is the same technique used by professional triathletes and marathoners for their training, but it is nicely translated into a practical approach for paddling (both SUP and prone). And these guys have the creds to do this in that Roch Frey (a name many paddlers may know) is a front-running prone paddler who also trains a number of pro triathletes.
Great, easy to read resource that provides all the tools to raise your paddling to another level. Highly recommended.

HASH(0x9d0f4c90) out of 5 stars Great book, effective and tons of online support! 20 July 2013
By Ben - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Not living on the east or west coast, I find it's difficult to find as many paddling resources, training groups, etc. I was preparing for a long ocean race on the east coast when this book became available. I purchased it immediately and didn't put it down until I was finished. I consider myself to be a seasoned athlete... lots of years of training and competing in many different sports and a student of different training methodologies. For that reason, I was familiar with a lot of what was said in the book. However, I learned more from it than I already knew. I found it to be an easy read with great info. While the book does come with a 24 week BOP training plan, that is not what I was preparing for, nor did I have 24 weeks until my race. I believe I had 12. I understand that the BOP is still the largest race of the year and the book comes out of a SoCal training group, so it makes sense that they would offer up that plan. Here's where Riding Bumps truly excels... I contacted them with my training dilemmas...work schedule, only 12 weeks to go and not a BOP race... and they were back to me in a day or so with key tips on how to tweak the program to fit my needs and goals. I have used their "contact us" help multiple times since and each time they get back to me quickly and with great info. So, for $30 I feel like you are not only getting the book but a coach to some extent and that's a steal. I will be purchasing their ultra distance plan in the near future as well. In the end, it was a great program and I was able to go on and win my division and felt solid through the entire race and I honestly believe I owe a lot of that success to the training plan they help develop. I also used their tips for hydration and nutrition when planning the logistics of my race and it worked out perfectly. Never felt I had too much and never bonked. I don't believe there is a one stop shop for learning about this sport or racing. For one, it's too new a sport. Secondly, there are so many good resources out there. However, I do believe this book belongs in your library along with numerous other books, articles and blogs.

HASH(0x9cf490b4) out of 5 stars Pretty much the SUP Bible - for anyone serious about paddling 19 July 2013
By Sam K. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A little background on me - I'm a cyclist and I took up paddling because I just wanted to get out in the water and cross train a little bit. I found out I liked it a whole lot more than I thought and wound up spending a lot more time with it. I was considering getting a bit more competitive with it so my girlfriend bought this book for me. I just finished my first race and I couldn't have been happier or more prepared. There's a ton of information in this book. Actually there's a ton of stuff on the site as well, but luckily I was able to take the book with me to the beach. I was familiar with some of the concepts such as training with HR from my cycling background, but this book is just tailor made to get you race and not die trying. If you're thinking about paddle racing I don't know how you'd do better than this book.

HASH(0x9cf4a090) out of 5 stars Great material for new comers and old salty paddlers 21 Oct. 2013
By David Glassner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The guys at Riding Bumps have put together a ton of knowledge on the topic of both paddleboarding and SUP. They take note when the training/nutrition/gear/etc diverges between the two disciplines but they don't make it too one sided.

One of the other reviews here claims that there's more information available on their website. First off, they do provide a TON of information on the site and it's an amazing resource. You could get away with just reading the posts there, but you'd be missing out on how these guys put it all together.

They reiterate the important points so much in the book that you begin to ignore them. THAT'S THE POINT.

Riding Bumps' whole philosophy is "go slow to go fast" and about 99% of paddlers with quietly think to themselves, "Bah, they aren't talking to me, that doesn't apply to me". WRONG! They are talking to you. I had to catch myself multiple times skimming past the "go slow" parts of the book. But it's a crucial component! These guys are top of their sport for a reason.

So the book is great if not for beating you over the head with repetitive information, albeit necessary. You will learn a ton about how to get faster as long as you actually read and apply their methods to your training. I've already noticed a massive improvement in my recovery and my speed in training.

It's a great book if you are looking for a physical training program for SUP and Prone paddle race, don't get confused with the "Riding Bumps" on the title, it have nothing on downwind techniques.
