Have you been down to the beach lately and noticed people standing up on really big surfboards, paddling like Ozark river people, and wondered what that was all about? Well, it is an emerging global water sport with a Hawaiian heritage and it’s here to stay. It’s called “Stand Up Paddling” (S.U.P. for short).
Resurrected by famed big-wave riders Laird Hamilton and Dave Kalama, SUPing offers a full-body ‘core’ workout like you wouldn’t believe. And, even better, you’re outside - not in a boring, smelly gym.
Stand up paddling can be done anywhere there is water: a lake, river, stream, fish pond, wave pool...anywhere there is access to safe waters, as well as in the surfing lineups around the world.
