About Stand Up Paddling

Stand up paddle surfing (SUP), stand up paddle boarding, or in the Hawaiian language Hoe he'e nalu, is an emerging global sport with a Hawaiian heritage. 

The sport is an ancient form of surfing, and has reemerged as a way for surfers to paddle longer distances.

Stand up paddling began in the 1960s when surfing instructors used the technique to position themselves to for taking photographs. More recently, professional surfers used the technique for training and has become widley popular.  Supporters cite the ease of learning as a key to its popularity, with beginners becoming comfortable in as little as an hour of training. River stand up paddle boarding is also very popular with women for the core fitness capability offered when correct technique is used.

Surfers have also converted because of the versatility of the new sport. Stand up paddle boarding offers surfers the ability to catch more waves in a set, as well as offering a better view of incoming sets.

River SUP'ing is gaining popularity in the boating community due to the skill and agility required to navigate rapids and obstacles.

Stand up paddle surfing is now the fastest growing water surf activity because it allows a wider range of athletic types to get involved and SUP surfers need not schedule around high and low tides.
