SUP Excursion at CROM Physical Culture

Stand Up Paddleboarding is a great method of conditioning for “stand up” martial artist/fighters. Learning how to balance yourself on a board can be likened to balancing yourself while standing on one leg and throwing a round kick.


CROM Physical Culture and A Team Paddleboarding have partnered to offer this exclusive Land & Surf Excursion! Come experience the exciting sports of Muay Thai and paddle boarding in New York City’s premier beachside getaway: Rockaway Beach.

This one of a kind excursion is perfect for everyone! Whether you are a complete beginner looking to learn or an experienced Muay Thai stylist or paddler looking for new scenery and/or advancing your techniques.

Cross Train with PROs

Andrew progressed quickly and started racing at the elite level after his 1st year in the competitive SUP circle. He currently splits his time as a team rider for Riviera Paddlesurf and Akamai Paddle Sports with running two paddleshops in Rockaway Beach.

Chris Romulo is a former Professional Muay Thai Champion and a pioneer of the sport on the east coast.
