What is SUP?
Who invented stand up paddle boarding? Stand up paddle boarding boom!
In the early sixties. The beach boys of Waikiki, Hawaii would stand on their long boards, paddling to the distant outside reef break using paddles. Maui surf legend Laird Hamilton was looking for a way to cross train for big waves in the early 90's so he grabbed a canoe paddle and his longest surf board and found paddling while upright to be a fantastic workout. But paddle boarding original roots date back over thousands of years to ancient Hawaiian, Peruvian and African culture. All 3 cultures had some form of paddle boarding.In modern times it started to become popular among surf instructors and photographers trying to get a higher vantage point then the surface of the water, and continued to gain popularity because it is just plain FUN.
One of the fastest growing water sport in the World, stand up paddle boarding is growing by leaps and bounds. It is a fun, easy way to go play on the water. You can do it on any body of water from oceans, lakes, rivers, bays and bayous - even a swimming pool if it's big enough. Great for kids and adults, if you can swim, you can stand up paddle board.
Stand Up Paddleboarding is not only fun, but it is a great way to get some exercise. SUP offers Core Strengthening, Cardio, Balance, Body Toning, and more. Stand Up Paddle Boarding can be as low impact or as high impact as YOU desire.
