SUP is an acronym that stands for “standup paddle board”. A SUP uses a surf style board and a long paddle and is a cross between canoeing and surfing. Standup paddling can be done in a variety of forms such as on flat water protected lakes to easy beach paddling, to open water paddling and all the way to surfing waves.
