Stand up paddling provides some of the best fun and adventure you can have on the water! With roots in Hawaii, stand up paddling entails balancing atop a large surf-like board while propelling across a body of water with a single paddle. Due to its versatility and ease of learning, stand up paddling is exploding across the nation, and has become the most popular way for people of all ages to explore various waterways from rivers to oceans.
