It seems the new hybrid sport of stand-up paddling and surfing is getting more popular everyday. That’s great, but so things are moving so fast that it is getting hard to keep up with all the advances.

The History of Stand Up Paddle SurfingStand up paddle surfing, or SUP, is a surface water sport, a variant of surfing where the surfer uses a paddle to move through the water while standing on a surfboard. Stand up paddle surfing is derived from its Polynesian roots. The Hawaiian translation is Ku Hoe He'e Nalu; to stand, to paddle, to surf, a wave.

The popularity of the modern sport of SUP has its origination in the Hawaiian Islands.
