Definitely! As a beginner, you are unlikely to even notice the difference between this and a rigid SUP. In fact, paddleboarding in general is an excellent sport for beginners. So long as you can master the balance, you can be up and going in minutes.
Some tips for beginners include checking the weather, wearing the proper gear, and wearing sunscreen. The most important part is finding a suitable body of water. Lakes are best for this. Lakes have typically flat water, except on windy days. Oceans and rivers are also acceptable, but be sure to watch out for big waves, strong currents, and fast water.
