From the stars to the athletes, from the young to the old, everyone's catching waves in a new way. Stand up paddle surfing is taking the world by storm. Whether you call it SUP surfing, paddle surfing, stand up paddle boarding or beach boy surfing, you are entering a new addition to the waterman lifestyle. And, if you're tired of doing those crunches, it's a really good ab workout! "It's an excellent core workout. It's stability, core fitness; it's aerobics. It really covers all part of physical fitness."
One difference between the modern idea of surfing and SUP is that the latter does not need a wave. In SUP, one can paddle on the open ocean, in harbors, on lakes, rivers or any large body of water. One of the advantages of Stand Up Paddle Surfing is the angle of visibility. Because of the standing height over the water one can see both deeper into the water and further across the surface of the water, allowing better visualization of features others lower above the water may not be able to see, whether it is the marine life in the harbors, lakes and coves or the incoming swells of the ocean marching on the horizon.
