Stand up paddle (SUP) boarding

Stand up paddle boarding, also known as SUP or in the language of Hawaii hoe he’e nalu, is a rapidly growing sport worldwide with the roots from Hawaii. SUP began from surfing, when instructors stood up on their boards to get a better view.

Laird Hailton and Dave Kalama were the first to introduce this old sport to the modern watersport world. Rick Thomas was the first “modern” surfer who, in 2000, brought the sport from Hawaii to the continental US. The sport was quickly accepted there as it offers a chance to stay on the wave longer and the overview is much better.

As stand up paddle boarding is easy to learn, it is an effective training for athletes and a pleasant activity for millions of people around the world.
