The boards are very wide which makes for easy balancing, but also provide a good workout because you muscles are kept tense to maintain balance. Due to its versatility and ease of learning, SUP is exploding across the nation and has become the hippest way for people of all ages to explore various waterways from rivers to oceans. With roots in Hawaii, Stand Up Paddling (SUP) entails balancing atop a large surf-like board while propelling across a body of water with a single paddle.
