Stand Up Paddleboard or SUP, is now the fastest growing water sport in the world and those who have tried it understand why. The challenge, fun and ease make SUP available to just about anyone who wants to give it a try. Paddleboarding wakes up muscles that are rarely used, and helps develop core strength, making it attractive to those who want to improve their strength while taking their exercise out of the gym and on to the water.
