What is stand up paddle boarding?

SUP is an acronym that stands for “standup paddleboarding,” and it is taking the water sports world by storm. While it is difficult to measure the level of participation in outdoor sports, kayaking has long been considered the fastest-growing water sport of the 1990s and early 2000s. It’s also safe to say that paddling kayaks have gone from the fastest-growing to the most popular. Well, it looks like the sport of kayaking will have to relinquish at least one of those titles.

Standup paddleboarding is quickly becoming the water sport of choice, and while SUP might not be the most popular (yet), it certainly is the fastest growing
