The popularity of the modern sport of SUP has its origin in the Hawaiian Island in 1944 while the first board was actually built in the 1930's. Laird Hamilton and Dave Kalama re-introduced the ancient sport of paddle surfing to the modern sports world. SUPing has become the fastest growing water sport in the history of water sports and in the past few years, the sport has been spreading across the mainland and adapted for every style, from leisurely cruises in placid waters to surfing waves in the Pacific. The sport benefits men and women of all ages. SUPing is popular 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 where there is easy access to safe waters, as well as the surfing line ups of the world. The rise in popularity of stand up paddle-boarding can also be attributed to how easy it is to learn. Within a very short time, you can become comfortable in the water and on your board.
