The fast-growing sport of Stand Up Paddling (SUP) is a fun, easy way to go and play on the water. Stand up paddling is a very cool sport that provides you with countless fun and adventure! With a minimum of equipment, you can paddle anything from the ocean to lakes and rivers - no waves required.

Stand Up Paddling is becoming a very popular water sport. Stand Up Paddleboard begins on flat water, where you can get your balance on the oversized boards. Standup boards are larger and more stable than surfing longboards, which makes them more stable. The boards are ridden standing up, so some initial balance is required. The rider uses a long-shafted paddle for propulsion and steering. There are different strokes you can learn to help you turn and to make you go.

Stand Up Paddling has grown into a worldwide phenomenon. It has become many things to different people; a recreational water sport, a competitive sport and a great way to get a core workout.

You do not require any previous experience and super fit to try the Stand Up Paddling sport. It is much less demanding than regular surfing. Therefore it appeals to all ages, young and old. This makes it a great activity that families can share and do it together. People with all body shapes, sizes and ages are engaging in paddle boarding as a fun fitness activity for a full-body workout. SUPing can be a low impact or high impact exercise depending on your intensity using a combination of balance, strength, core, and endurance. With so many ways to paddleboard from racing, surfing, yoga, touring, and recreational and it burns a lot of calories you may be surprised!
