STAND UP PADDLING PROGRAM ​

Stand Up Paddling History

SUP began in the 1960s in Hawaii, when surfing instructors used the technique to position themselves for taking photographs. More recently, professional surfers used the technique for training and have become “wildly popular”. Supporters cite the ease of learning as a key to its popularity, with beginners becoming comfortable in as little as an hour of training. SUP boarding highly popular with both men and women worldwide.

What are the advantages of Stand Up Paddling? What makes it so fun?

Stand Up Paddling is a “new” water sport that is fast growing where invented by Hawaiians for photo taking. Over the world, it is now becoming a water sport, which focus on the core fitness with distance flat-water paddle as well as stand up paddle surfing.

In SUP, one can paddle on the open ocean, in harbors, on lakes, rivers or any large body of water. One of the advantages of Stand Up Paddle Boarding is the angle of visibility. Because of the standing height over the water, one can see both deeper into the water and further across the surface of the water, allowing better visualization of features others lower above the water may not be able to see, whether it is the marine life in the harbors, lakes and coves or the incoming swells of the ocean marching on the horizon.

Stand up paddle is a phrase that is quickly gaining in popularity. Over the past few years the sport of stand up paddle boarding has grown significantly and now people are throwing yoga into the mix.
