Stand up paddle boarding, often shortened to SUP, is one of the fastest growing watersports we’ve seen. As most people can be stood up on the large boards almost instantly, using a paddle to propel themselves and control the board, it explains the popularity. They can be a great introduction to watersports whether on a lake, river, or the ocean. Since the development of inflatable SUPs (and the dramatic improvement of board technology) this burgeoning discipline has become even more accessible with new styles to try and areas to explore. Specialised performance boards are also available for demanding sea conditions, wave riding or long touring distances. There is also a thriving competitive race scene with light, fast, agile boards. Our selection covers all riders, from beginner paddlers to elite racers, plus a variety of paddles and all the accessories you will need.
