What is SUP?
The Waikiki boys began using outrigger canoe paddles with surfboards in the 1960′s, as a way to keep an eye on tourists and to get better pictures as beginners made their first attempts at surfing the waves.
SUP is a surface water sport where the surfer uses a paddle to move through the water while standing on a surfboard. Standup paddle boards are basically extra-long and buoyant surfboards.
Standup paddle boarding is frequently called SUP and is an ideal sport to learn on flat bodies of water and provides the sensation of walking on water. The main difference between surfing and SUPing is that the paddler doesn’t need a wave. A standup paddler can quickly and easily travel across open waters and rivers.
