Unlike surfboarding, stand-up paddle boarding, otherwise known as SUP does not require hours of learning how to fall off the board; instead, the trickiest part of SUP would be learning how to keep your balance.

Anyone over the age of eight can participate and the only other requirement is to know how to swim.
