About Us

Ready for the latest watersports craze?

Standup paddle boarding, or SUP for short, offers an unforgettable experience every member of the family can enjoy.

It’s like combining surfing with kayaking and…you’ve got SUP.

You don’t have to be an athlete…users of all sizes, ages and ability, or no ability at all, can have the time of their life!

But if you are athletically inclined, it’s an amazing full-body workout, improving your core strength, cardio fitness, balance, and flexibility with virtually no impact.

From intense full body workouts, to leisurely paddling across serene water, SUP fits your lifestyle.

History

Born of Hawaiian heritage, SUP is actually an ancient form of surfing. It was originally a convenient way for surf instructors to manage their large groups of surfers.

Standing on the board gave the instructors better visibility of the group and what was happening around them.

While the popularity of modern SUP began in Hawaii, people from all over Polynesia, Africa and Asia have fished standing up.

Little did they know SUP would become one of the fastest growing forms of water recreation in the world.

SUP is surging with gear sales up about 200% in the past year alone!
