Stand up paddle surfing and stand up paddle boarding (SUP) is an offshoot of surfing that originated in Hawaii. Unlike traditional surfing where the rider sits until a wave comes, stand up paddle boarders stand on their boards and use a paddle to propel themselves through the water.  Variations include flat water paddling for outdoor recreation, fitness, or sightseeing, racing on lakes, large rivers and canals, surfing on ocean waves, paddling in river rapids (whitewater SUP), Paddle board yoga and even fishing.

Want to give it a go? 

 

The SHACs Introduction to SUP Sessions will teach you all the basics you need to get started with Stand Up Paddle Boarding. We supply the boards, the best teaching location in the country and some of the best and most experienced BSUPA qualified instructors you will find to make your first SUP experience the best itcan possibly be.
