Standup Paddleboarding

Standup Paddleboarding (SUP) is one of the fastest growing watersports in the UK, and is booming in places like Australia and the USA. It is similar to surfing, but easier as the rider stands up on a long, wide board, and uses a long paddle to propel yourself across the water.

It's not all about whitewater, SUP is a great way to explore the thousands of miles of rivers and canals that the UK has to offer. The paddle makes it easier and quicker to get up to speed, and the rider can see more from the standing position, enjoying great views of the British countryside and coast.
