Stand Up Paddle History

Stand up paddle surfing (SUP), or in the Hawaiian language Hoe he'e nalu, is an emerging global sport with a Hawaiian heritage. The sport is an ancient form of surfing, and began as a way for surfing instructors to manage their large groups of learner surfers, as standing on the board gave them a higher viewpoint, increasing visibility of what was going on around them. To begin with, this started with using a one-bladed paddle, whilst standing on a normal length surfboard. The popularity of the modern sport of SUP has its origination in the Hawaiian Islands but peoples from all over Polynesia, Africa and Asia have for ages fished standing on board-like crafts due to the advantages of their elevated viewpoints. Today, due to technological advancements in board and paddle design, SUP has become one of the fastest growing forms of recreation in the world.
