WHAT’S SUP?

SUP is a shortened word version for Stand Up Paddle Boarding. Standup paddle boarding began where most board sports that involve water began, in Hawaii. Known in Hawaii as Hoe he’e nalu, SUP got it’s beginning as a way for photographers and surf instructors to have a higher vantage point on the water.

SUP uses a long wide surf style board and a long paddle adjustable to your height. Surprisingly for most first time users, the board is very stable to the water and quite easy to navigate. Paddle boarders position their feet in a balanced fashion on the board and alternate paddling on each side. SUP gives adventurers a unique opportunity to connect with the body of water they are paddling. At basecamp our paddling adventures take us to lakes, rivers and even ocean bays and beaches.
