The stand up paddleboarding (SUP) craze started years ago on the Hawaiian Islands when surfers were looking for other ways to train while the surf was down. The difference between regular surfing and SUP is in the waves; to stand up paddleboard, no waves are required, only oceans, lakes and other large bodies of water.
