What is Stand Up Paddleboarding?
There are various modes of stand up paddling, including flat water paddling for outdoor recreation, fitness, or sightseeing, racing on lakes, large rivers and canals, surfing on ocean waves, paddling in river rapids (whitewater SUP), SUP Yoga, and even fishing.
A new SUP bard can cost between £400 - 2,500, however they can be rented for use. Cheaper inflatable boards are also available.
According to the Outdoor Foundation's 2013 Outdoor Participation Report, stand up paddle boarding was listed as the most popular outdoor activity among first-time participants in the USA.
