The fastest growing sport of Stand up paddle boarding – also know as SUP – is a phenomenal work out & great fun. Stand up paddle boarding is a traditional Hawaiian sport which promotes balance, strength & general fitness. Health & fitness experts around the world are using the outstanding cross-training benefits of SUPs. It engages your entire body, from the end of your toes fighting for balance to your head concentrating on all of your movements to balance on the board.
The first stand up paddle surfers emerged in Waikiki in the early 1950s. Big-wave surfers Kalama and Laird Hamilton, back in 1996, paddled around the bay of Maui standing up on surfboards using canoe paddles. The following day Hamilton had some longer paddles made, fifteen years later, SUP is soaring in popularity as a recreational activity, workout routine, sport and fun way to spend time on the water with family and friends. It is great for surfers & non-surfers alike. It is accessible to everyone, just like skiing and riding a bike that almost anyone can do.
On both flat water and amongst the waves stand up paddle boarding is an ideal activity for cross-training, yoga and pleasure as it brings together legs, back, feet, arms, neck and stomach muscles in a graceful display of core strength and balance while you enjoy your natural surroundings.
