Welcome to SUP North
stand up paddle boarding
STAND UP PADDLE BOARDING is the fastest growing water sport in the world. It can be as relaxing or as extreme as you like, but propelling yourself along while standing on a board gives an enormous sense of achievement and well-being. SUP is also a fantastic workout and will improve your fitness almost without you noticing that you’re exercising. There’s no age limit or need for a high level of fitness – it’s a perfect activity for families together.
It’s not as difficult as you may think to get on your feet, but there will always be room to improve and techniques to master, so SUP boarders are always learning and progressing. The possibilities on a stand up paddle board are endless. From flat water cruising, surfing, exploring and down-winding to SUP yoga, racing and SUP fitness training, there’s something for everyone and your horizons will definitely expand.
