Stand up Paddling has not been around for very long. It started off as a trendy, new sport and is still hip today. But it also falls under the category of serious water sports now too. There are many trips organized through some of the most beautiful spots like on the channels of Amsterdam, Utrecht or even Amersfoort. Next to that there are also many beautiful nature reserves like the Alde Feanen in Friesland or the Biesbosch in South Holland. In addition there have recently been more competitions held including different classes and disciplines like Freestyle, race, golf or downwinders (with wind).
In contrast to regular surfing where you're lying down or kneeling and paddling with your arms; when using a standup paddle board, we stand up straight and use a paddle instead of our hands for propulsion (thus lessening strain).
Stand Up Paddle Boards come in various lengths and widths depending on what you want to use it for: race supping, wave supping or just allround.
Stand up paddle boarding has been experiencing a recent surge in popularity. It can be done everywhere; On the ocean, lakes and rivers, as long as there is water!
SUPping is not difficult; but don't underestimate the workout. During a SUP-tour you are training your muscles as well as endurance. It's a challenging balance workout for all the muscles you didn't even know existed. Your core, in particular your abs, and back get plenty of work because there's constantly shifting from one foot to another. Plus it improves overall stability that can lead to better performance during other sports such as skiing, golfsurfing, kiteboarding or snowboarding!
