Short Background and History on
Stand Up Paddle Boarding
Stand up paddle boarding (SUP) was first explored in Peru and migrated to Polynesia from South America, as indicated by the explorer and environmentalist, Thor Heyedahls, Kon Tiki expedition.
It developed further as a hobby and sport in Hawaii.
Since its inception in the last decade or so, SUP has seen incredible and almost unbelievable growth due to its versatility, fun, variety of application and the great physical workout you get from it!
Anyone can do it and once you try it you are often hooked. According to a recent report, Stand Up Paddle Boarding had more first time participants than any other outdoors activity in the Word. This amazing growth is only expected to continue as more people find out about it and give it a go.
Unlike more traditional surfing and windsurfing where you often need to depend on certain conditions of waves or wind to be able to undertake these activities, SUP has no restrictions. It can be enjoyed basically anywhere there is water – whether that is at sea, on a lake or river. It has also diversified in to many different forms of SUP; from racing, to SUP fishing, exploring, Wind SUP and even SUP yoga!
It is a very new sport and pastime, only really having taken off post 2005, and it’s a wonder why we took so long to become the world’s favorite water sport.
