While so many people are busy enjoying this SUP adventure, there are people like us that are wondering whether this activity is here to stay. I mean, the equipment is not cheap.

Whatís the right SUP board for you? That all depends on what youíd like to do with it...
The shape of a stand up paddleboard (a.k.a SUP) is one of the most important characteristics that differentiate it from surfboards.
