Take To The Open Water With Starboard Sups  -  The Best SUP Boards Online

Stand-up paddle boarding is the latest trend to hit the shores, lakes and rivers worldwide. The basic concept of the stand up paddle boarding has been around for centuries, with places such as Peru, Polynesia and South America all having documented history of riding a board in an upright position and using paddles to maneuver through the water.

The widely accepted notion is that modern-day SUP boarding was popularized in the 1960’s by the Waikiki Beach Boys, who, instead of laying flat on the board and paddling with the hands and feet to catch waves, would stay standing on the board and use a paddle to propel themselves through the water to ride the waves.

Over the last decade the sport has seen a huge resurgence, and nowadays, not all riders are thrill seeking surfers, instead a whole new generation of SUP enthusiasts are using the boards for outdoor recreation, leisurely sightseeing trips, fitness routines and even yoga.

In 2013, SUP had the ‘highest number of new participants’ of all outdoor activities, according to the Outdoor Participation Report published by the Outdoor Foundation Industry.*
