Stand up paddle boarding is a becoming a very popular watersport, and is fun for all ages. Stand up paddle surfing (SUP) begins on flat water, where you can get your balance on the oversized boards. The boards larger and more stable than surfing longboards, which makes them more stable. The boards are ridden standing up, so some initial balance is required. The rider uses a long shafted paddle for propulsion and steering. There are different strokes you learn to help you turn, and to make you go. (Steering is more about paddle-work in the beginning).
