Test equipment & experience the fun & fitness benefits of SUP

An offshoot of surfing, stand-up paddleboarding, or SUP, has evolved into one of the world’s fastest growing sports—popular for both recreation and fitness.
 
Enjoyable and easy-to-master, it’s a great way to explore any body of water—from ocean surf to lakes and rivers. SUP also provides an excellent core workout that can be customized for skill and experience levels.
