Stand up paddling appears to have been around for thousands of years. There is evidence that ancient cultures in South America used watercraft with long sticks to travel, to fish and even in war.
Modern day SUP is said to have originated the early 1940’s in Hawaii, where stand up paddle surfing was used by surf instructors to get a better view of the surfers in the water and waves, and to also take photos of their clients. It faded out of popularity as alternatives became available including such things as: waterproof cameras, jetskies etc.
SUP as we know it now, re-emerged in the year 2000 with the first known competitions taking place in 2004. It has since gained immense popularity.
Instructors Jason & John can take you on a 2 hour Discover Sup Boarding session at the many local locations they use.
