Stand Up Paddle, also known as SUP is a new watersports phenomenon. SUP is quickly gaining popularity all over the world. It originates from Hawaii where a couple of crafty surfers started using paddles to catch waves faster. They have learned that there’s more fun to it even when there are no waves.
Not long after first SUP boards were made and they were wider and longer than surfboards to provide stability and speed when paddling. Sup sport grew and many disciplines were created, such as flat water race, downwind ride and SUP surfing. First of all, the versatility and entertaining experience of Stand Up Paddleboarding is responsible for the SUP slowly replacing classic surfing and even kayaking.
