@Jane , thank you!

Here's an example of an activity:

I usually start recording with "SUP" and then go back and edit to "workout." The problem comes with aggregation of activities in my training log. I'll have other activities that use the "workout" category, so my total results might be skewed. Similarly with using "SUP" - there are times where I'll actually be Stand Up Paddling, so I don't want to mix that particular tag.

Thank you!

Waiting desperately for this too. No other option comes close. It’s not a kayak or a canoe and it’s not stand up paddling. Strava, you could just use the same algorithm as swimming and create this sport. There are many of use using other tools to track simply because you don’t offer it.

Yes! I’ve been waiting for this option. I’m new to prone paddling but the community is amazing and this would be a big help to connect paddlers further. No one knows what sport to tag so it’s very disorienting.

Please add this asap! I’m tired of people thinking I am a SUP guy.

Totally agree, such a great, growing sport. It’s my new daily in any conditions. 

For those of us that do multiple board / water sports would be ideal to have it separated as the speeds and distances are unique (these boards are fast), easily skewing SUP or kayak histories.

Hi team strava, please add prone paddling !  

Mt. Kenya

Please add prone paddling as a dedicated activity.  Thank you.

Would be nice to have Prone Paddle as an activity so I don't have to combine it with other activities or compete with people from other activities.

+1 to needing a dedicated prone paddle activity type!

In case it's useful for anyone else I've been using "surf" as the activity type since I don't actually log my surf sessions

Would be more inclined to use the app if prone paddling was on the app.


thanks for everyone's kudos and replies! tell your friends that paddle and use strava!

I would love Stand Up Paddle as an activity in STRAVA.  Hope you add it in the near future.

Stand Up Paddle "SUP"  is already on strava.  @Jandb 


+1 I would love to see a Prone Paddling activity also, a logical addition. It's very different to SUP, they aren't the same activity.
