PADDLEBOARDING GENERAL INFO
Stand Up Paddleboarding (or SUP for short) is one of the newest crazes in watersports and popular culture. However, paddleboarding has actually been around for thousands of years- when Hawaii fisherman would go out for the day’s catch, on a large plank-style board, and return by surfing in on the waves. Sounds exhilarating!
Paddleboarding is a versatile sport which combines the basic principles of surfing and kayaking. A paddleboarder stands or kneels on an oversized surfboard while propelling themselves through the water with a single bladed paddle. Some paddleboarders like to maneuver and surf in the waves, while others prefer to coast in lakes and rivers- imagine if you could “hike” on the water!
The best thing about paddleboarding is its low barrier to entry and versatility. Paddleboarding is a sport not only for "extreme" minded people, it's also a relaxing sport that gives you as much or as little workout as you want!
