Stand Up Paddling

Stand Up Paddling

Stand Up Padlling, also known as SUP, is a sport which the Hawaiian kings practised centuries ago. It has increased in popularity over the last years and has found its ideal destination in the world of canoeing.

People of all ages can enjoy it, standing up on a board with a paddle with unbeatable views of the rivers and the nature.

Advanced paddlers and experts of this more and more popular sport find endless places to measure themselves against the wild forces of the sea, the rivers and other competitors.

Typical race formats are long distance events, in which distances stretch between 8 and 12 kilometres, as well as sprint events organised on a short course marked with buoy where 4 to 6 athletes are fighting head to head.

Children and amateur races are usually included in these events. And you can find plenty of other competition formats even for experts in wildwater.

Most common boards are 14" hardboards for elite paddlers and 12'6" hardboards and inflatable boards for younger and amateur classes.
