What is Stand Up Paddle Boarding?

SUP or ‘Hoe he’e nalu’ in the Hawaiian language, is a recently developed watersport that can be seen as having its roots in surfing. Unlike traditional wave surfing where the rider sits until a wave arrives, Stand Up Paddle boarders stand on their boards and use them to propel themselves through the water. Because they are able to generate much greater speeds, this also enables them to catch many more waves than traditional surfing and, if you are good enough, catch the swell all day long without even getting your hair wet! Pay attention girls!

Variations of SUP include flat water paddling for outdoor recreation, fitness, sightseeing, racing, surfing waves, paddling on river rapids, and even yoga! This is one of the fastest growing watersports on the planet which has seen an astronomical rise in participants over the past few years. This is mainly due to the relaxing nature of the sport, the accessibility it allows to almost anyone of any age or fitness level being able to get out on the water, and its versatility to be possible in a wide variety of locations and weather conditions. SUP is a truly fantastic way for kids to let their imagination roam free and have fun in the water, for adults to exercise and improve their core strength and posture, and for everyone to join in and have some fun together. SUP is one of the best ways to enjoy the outdoors with their friends whilst getting fit, getting wet, and having fun!
