Standup Paddleboarding (or SUP) originated in Hawaii as on off-shoot of surfing, and is one of the fastest-growing watersports in the world. Paddleboards range from 8 to 12 feet in length, and are wide enough to remain stable when the rider stands up. A long paddle allows the rider to move across the water, while keeping this unique vantage point.
Nearly any lake can be used for paddleboarding since the boards have almost no draft. Fisherman also enjoy the boards for their ability to navigate most any water, and because the standing position allows them to see further down into the water.
