Stand up paddling – SUP  – also  called “Paddle surfing”, is a water sport that involves standing on a specially designed surfboard and propelling yourself forward using a paddle.

Stand up paddle surfing is an easy to learn activity which can be enjoyed by people of any age and fitness level. It offers a unique way to connect with nature, enjoy the water, and engage in a full-body workout. Whether you’re looking for relaxation, adventure, or a fun social activity, stand up paddling can provide a fulfilling and enjoyable experience.

Many people enjoy paddle surfing as a leisure activity, simply cruising along calm waters, exploring coastlines, or paddling around lakes and rivers. It provides an opportunity to enjoy the scenery and relax on the water.

The best way To engage in stand up paddling is to start by positioning yourself on the board in a kneel position, preferably in calm water or shallow areas. The absence of waves allows for a more relaxed and steady balance on the stand up paddle board. Once you’ll get more confident, standing up on the board and keep paddling will be extremely easy!
