Stand up paddle surfing (SUP), stand up paddle boarding is an emerging global sport with an Austin, Texas heritage.
The sport benefits athletes with a strong 'core' workout. SUP'ing is popular on Lady Bird Lake and at warm coastal climates and resorts, and is gaining in popularity as celebrities are sampling the sport, and cross-over athletes are training with SUP. SUPs have been spotted around the globe, anywhere there is easy access to safe waters. Another reason for the rise in popularity of stand up paddleboarding is that, unlike surfing, paddleboarding is very easy to learn. Within one hour you can become very comfortable in the water and on your board.
