SUP History

The Origin of SUP

History of Stand Up Paddling Boarding

The popularity of the modern sport of stand up  paddleboarding, commonly referred to as SUP’ing, has its origin in the Hawaiian Islands. In the early 1960s, the beach boys of Waikiki would stand on their long boards, and paddle to the distant outside reef break using outrigger paddles.

In spite of its surfing origin the sport is gaining in popularity even in more protected coastal waters and lakes. The sport benefits athletes with a strong “core” workout.

SUP’ing is popular at warm coastal climates and resorts, and is gaining in popularity as celebrities are sampling the sport, and cross-over athletes are training with SUP. SUPs have been spotted around the globe, anywhere there is easy access to safe waters, as well as in the surfing lineups of the world.

Another reason for the rise in popularity of stand up paddleboarding is that, unlike surfing, paddleboarding is very easy to learn. Within one hour you can become very comfortable in the water and on your board.

Stand up paddleboarding is also more popular with women because of their lower centre of gravity, women are often more skilled at paddleboarding than men

The liberating thing about an inflatable standup paddleboard is how easy it is to take with you everywhere you go. You don’t need a van or a roof rack to take it on a road trip, and once you’re at the airport, just check in your Red Paddle Co backpack with the rest of your gear. When you get to the water, the board takes just a few minutes to inflate, and then you’re free to explore @standuppaddlesa with @redpaddlecoauA family that SUPs together, has awesome fun together 😀@Standuppaddlesa wth @redpaddlecoau and @starboardsup #sup #standuppaddle #starboardsup

#holdfastbayIf you’ve visited a beach, lake or river anytime in the past few years you can’t have failed to notice the increasing numbers of people gliding gracefully across the water, seemingly stood on the water. At first, it can seem slightly surreal. On closer inspection you realise they’re stood on what look like surfboards and are propelling themselves across the water by means of a paddle. And in some cases it’s not even restricted to one person per board, with some carrying anything up to 8 people. And that’s not including the dogs, who are often keen passengers on these craft too. The other thing that you will have probably noticed is that these boards come in a huge variety of sizes and styles, and that their use is as wide and varied as the people who use them –  from families having fun at the beach, to individuals using them for yoga, surfing, racing, fitness training or epic paddling adventures. Visit us at the Adelaide show grounds for information regarding the correct Redpaddleco SUP for you. Then join us at Seacliff Beach for a hire or demo 😎@StanduppaddlesaSun out, pups out 😍🐶😎
Enjoy the sunshine this weekend with your furry friends, don’t leave them at home! 💓
