Explore the oceans and rivers  by paddling along them! SUP (short for Stand up paddle boarding) originated in Hawaii, and has become one of the most accessible ways to enjoy beautiful stretches of open water and keep fit. No surprise it is one of the fastest growing board sports in the world. The boards we use are large and very stable, perfect for learning this relaxing pastime. SUP also has progression to riding waves once you have learnt the basics.
