Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP)

Have you been curious about this new craze going on just about every pond, river and lake around the country? Birthed hundreds of years ago in Bolivia and refined more recently in Hawaii, SUP is pretty much a big surfboard that you paddle with a long canoe paddle. Hey, I thought it was silly too until I really tried it. Since then, I've been trained as an instructor and have been enjoying it immensely as a supplement to my other paddlesports. It’s like walking on water…you’ll see EVERYTHING down there! Besides being great fun, it is also an amazing core workout…two statements never found in the same sentence!
