SUP has become a house hold term recognized by most in the
last few years. The driving momentum
behind this sport is that it allows paddlers to enjoy beautiful scenery in the
great outdoors while exercising and it’s not terribly difficult. I’ll admit it’s
on the expensive side initially, but in comparison to most watersports, it’s
very affordable. You don’t need a boat, it doesn’t run on gas, and you don’t
need a V8 to pull it to the lake. If you’re
anything like me, (CRAZY about stand up paddling,) you’ve been scouring the
internet and book stores for all the information you can find since you first
stepped foot on a SUP.
Below are some excellent resources you can find on the web or
on the shelves at the grocery store or book store to help cultivate your love
for the greatest sport on earth! Stand Up Paddleboarding.
