Hawaiian SUP Maui by Steve Harris
Standup Paddleboarding (SUP) is an offshoot of surfing with roots in Hawaii in the 1900's and the modern form of SUP began in Waikiki in the 1940's and has evolved into many popular variations of water activities including surfing with paddles, fishing, flat water paddling and even yoga. Hawaiian Standup Paddleboard Lessons, Rentals and Live Reservations are offered here for all the Hawaiian Islands.

Stand up paddle boarding is a becoming a very popular pastime. And is fun for all ages. Also know as "SUP", It was originally called "beach boy surfing", named after the famous Waikiki beach boys, who combined their outrigger canoe paddling skills with their surfing skills. Stand up paddle boarding (SUP) begins on flat water, where you can get your balance on the oversized boards. Stand-up boards are larger and more stable than surfing longboards, which makes them more stable. The boards are ridden standing up, so some initial balance is required.
