SUP stands for stand up paddleboard or stand up paddleboarding. Some people use paddleboards to kneel on or even sit on, rather than standing up. A key difference between paddleboarding and surfing is that in paddleboarding, a paddle is used to propel and maneuver the board to glide over the water and waves whereas in surfing the arms are used for paddling to catch a wave but once a surfer stands up on a wave, they use their legs and core to maneuver the board for the ride. Once a surfer is standing up and riding a wave, their hands and arms are mainly used for balance rather than for propulsion.
Along with being a fun and relaxing sport that you can do on your own or with a group, a great thing about SUP is that it gives you an almost entire body workout. In addition to using your hands and arms in conjunction with the paddle to propel and steer yourself, you use your legs and core to maintain your balance while on the water. A SUP is significantly easier to stand up and balance on compared to a traditional surfboard but SUP still provides an excellent work out.
