Stand up paddleboarding

Stand up Paddleboarding (SUP) has proved to be a great innovation in watersports with a whole new subculture taking this activity to extreme lengths. It combines the skills of the surfer with the ability to paddle the specially designed board using a long canoe paddle. This is a skill that takes some practice and is wonderful for developing great balance and core strength for students but also flexes the mind, developing resilience and instilling a healthy approach to life’s challenges.
