SUP Stand Up Paddleboarding

What is Paddleboarding?

Paddleboarding in one form or another has been around for thousands of years.  The essence of paddleboarding is to stand or kneel on a buoyant board, using a single bladed paddle as a means of propulsion and control.
Today’s paddleboards  are being used for leisure, fitness, racing, touring, polo, surfing, yoga, downwind, white water, foiling and wind-SUP.
