Paddle Boards (SUP)
What is SUP?
SUP (Stand Up Paddling) is the fastest growing water sport in the world! It’s the latest craze to sweep the waterways creating a buzz and earning a reputation as a walk-on-water phenomenon. A uniquely soulful experience, SUP is great for youth, athletes, and grandparents alike!
SUP is a hybrid sport that utilizes lower, mid, and upper body muscle groups providing one of the best core work-outs available. The low-impact core training is one of the fundamental reasons why SUP has gained so much momentum and popularity throughout the world!
- Stand up paddling is enjoyed with the paddler standing on a very stable paddle board and using a long lightweight paddle to propel and steer. It is an experience completely different from any other type of paddle sport.
- The ease of paddling an SUP will surprise you, the stability will shock you, and the fun-factor will refresh you. But it is the view from up high that will convert you. Being 5 to 6 feet above the water minimizes refraction and surface reflection and allows you to see all kinds of fish, turtles, and sealife as you paddle over. It’s a completely different experience with a clear view into the water you are paddling. Be forewarned, it is extremely addictive.
- And it’s not just for the conditioned athletes and young, tanned surfer types. People of all ages, shapes and sizes are enjoying this low-impact recreation. If a Stand Up Paddle Board sounds like too much of a challenge, rest assured it is not. You will be amazed at how easy they are to paddle. The long paddle gives you more reach, a longer stroke, and allows for almost effortless control.
