Stand up paddle surfing (SUP), is a fairly new sport with a Hawaiian heritage. It is an old form of surfing, and has reemerged as a way for surfers to paddle longer distances. The sport is gaining in popularity even in calm coastal waters and lakes. The sport benefits athletes with a strong “core” workout. SUP’ing is popular at warm coastal climates . Another reason for its popularity is that, unlike surfing, paddle boarding is very easy to learn. Within one hour you will find yourself paddling around, confident and very comfortable in the water . Stand up paddle boarding is also popular among girls, specially because an average adult woman’s lower center of gravity can give them a balance advantage.
