WHAT IS STAND UP PADDLE BOARDING?

The main thing that makes this different to surfing is the fact that you stand on the board and have a paddle to propel yourself along the coast. Stand up Paddle Boarding is often shortened to SUP as it makes it easier to say. The boards are generally much bigger than a surfboard, ranging from 8ft in length! SUP has taken off around the world since it started to hit the media in 2003. So what are you waiting for?
