Stand Up Paddle (SUP)
Stand Up Paddle Boarding or SUP originated in Hawaii. It is a variation of surfing. It uses large, very buoyant boards and long light-weight paddles. You stand on the board and use the paddle to propel yourself.
Because the boards are so buoyant and stable it makes the sport incredibly easy to learn. No matter what age or how physically active you are there is something in this sport for you. It is a lovely way to see the River Shannon.
