The original Stand up Paddle Boarding discipline!
Where does SUP come from?
Stand Up Paddleboard surfing (or SUP surfing) is, depending on which way you look at it, either the newest or the oldest kid on the water sports block.
With roots that predate surfing as we know it, SUP has technically been around since ancient Polynesian times, although it did disappear for a little over 300 years. It was picked up again in the 60s by the Waikiki 'beach-boys' in Hawaii, who found the higher vantage point a better way to keep an eye on the pupils in their surf schools.

Stand up paddleboard fishing is increasing rapidly in
popularity for several reasons. A SUP is cheaper and easier to transport than
a boat. Its streamlined design is stealthier and more quiet than using a motor
and allows you more mobility for fishing those hard to reach spots. There’s
also an added difficulty to overcome being required to maintain your balance
while trying to catch and land fish.
