WHAT IS SUP?
Stand Up Paddle Boarding (or SUP) is an emerging global sport whose roots run deep in Hawaiian history. The sport is an ancient form of surfing that originated in the Hawaiian Islands. The Hawaiian translation for SUP is Ku Hre He’s Nalu. Traced back to the early 1960′s surfers known as the Beach Boys of Waikiki, used to stand up and paddle out the break. Standing allowed instructors a higher viewpoint of their large groups of surfing students and help them take pictures of their students. Standing up also enabled them to better see the incoming swell. Fast forward to the present and SUP is one of the fastest growing sports in the world. SUP is an easy to learn water sport done on what is essentially an oversized (10-12ft) surfboard specifically designed for use on both flat water and surf. The volume of the board makes it so the rider is able to stand up and paddle with both mobility and stability. It is a new fun, amazing way to explore and experience the many rivers, lakes, streams, seas, and oceans. Because of the standing height over the water, one can see both deeper into the water and further across the surface of the water allowing better visualization of surrounding features.
