Stand Up Paddling
What is SUP?
Stand Up Paddle (SUP) is the act of propelling oneself on a floating platform with the help of a paddle or pole that traces back thousands of years and across many continents.
Modern SUP began in the 1940s in Hawaii when surfers and beach boys would use the technique to search and catch waves.
However, it wasn’t until the year 2000 that Rick Thomas, a native to Hawaii and Naval Special Forces Vietnam veteran introduced it to mainland America.
From there it took off like wildfire, especially with the likes of pro surfers Laird
Hamilton and Dave Kalama promoting the sport.
Fast forward to 2021, SUP is the fastest growing sport in the world for the past 10 years. Today you will see SUP on every type of water from ocean surf to rivers to lakes, in all parts of the world being enjoyed by a very large variety of people.
