The sport of stand up paddle boarding, or “SUP” as it is best known, has been around for centuries but over the past decade the sport has skyrocketed in popularity. Combining the tranquility of canoeing, the balance of yoga and the power of paddle sports, every year the sport sees more and more people literally getting on board.
If you are having trouble imaging this, think of it as a modified surf board on which you stand, or kneel, and paddle with a long, single bladed paddle. It offers a great abdominal work out, develops core strength and balance and is a ton of fun.
