SUPing, or stand up paddle surfing, is exactly what it sounds like: the rider stands up on a long board, which looks like an oversized surf board, and uses a paddle to power through the water. SUPing is basically a combination of surfing and kayaking/canoeing.
If you have never tried stand up paddling, but are curious to give it a go, we are sure that after some instruction on the basic strokes of balancing, turning and steering and a few wobbles, you will be able to make the transition from kneeling down to standing up straight. SUPing, like any board-related sport, balance is the key.
Let's just say, you know you are going to get a soaking if the paddle goes past the board and not the other way around. Also, don’t forget you need to paddle on both sides, otherwise you’ll end up going around in circles.
This versatile, extreme sport can be enjoyed anywhere there is water. Oarsome!
You must be able to swim at least 25 metres.
