Who is it for?
This course is for anyone who enjoys the water and wants to learn boarding skills to improve their physical and mental wellbeing.
SUP is an acronym that stands for “stand-up paddle boarding” and it is taking the water sports world by storm. Stand-up paddle boarding has its roots where all board sports have their beginnings, in Hawaii. Known as Hoe he’e nalu, stand-up paddle surfing actually has ancient roots but became popular in modern times among surf instructors and photographers trying to get a higher vantage point than the surface of the water. Basically, SUP uses a surf style board and a long paddle. In that regard, it is a cross between canoeing and surfing. Paddle boarding is for all ages and fitness levels. It’s a great form of work-out, using new muscles for building your strength, balance and endurance.
