SUP (stand up paddle boarding) is a sport where you swim with a board, very similar to a surfboard, with a paddle. You can ride this board both in flat water and in huge waves. You don't need to lie down on the board and fall apart with your hands. A paddle will help you do this. This sport originated thousands of years ago in Polynesia and migrated to Hawaii. Where it recently started to come back to life when surf instructors started wearing them to watch their students because standing up made it easier to see the group and the incoming waves. And at the moment it is a very popular sport both among adrenaline fanatics and among people who like to spend time actively in nature on the water.
