Stand up paddle boarding (SUP) began in the 1960s and has recently become very popular. Surfers use stand up paddleboards for training, photographers use SUPs to position themselves for great pictures, and others use SUPs for recreation and sport. Its popularity is most likely attributed to how easy it is to learn and get started since beginners can become comfortable and confident in under an hour of training and practice. Stand up paddle boarding is also incredibly popular with women. Some surfers have even switched to stand up paddle boards because it allows them to get into position to catch waves much faster.
