For your Information - Stand Up Paddle Boards (SUP)

Stand Up Paddle Boarding is an emerging global sport with a Hawaiian heritage. It can be traced back to the early days of Polynesia. The sport is an ancient form of surfing, and began as a way for surfing instructors to manage their large groups of learner surfers, as standing on the board gave them a higher viewpoint, increasing visibility of what was going on around them - such as incoming swell. To begin with, this started with using a one-bladed paddle, whilst standing on a normal length surfboard. The popularity of the modern sport of SUP has its origination in the Hawaiian Islands. In the early 1960s, the Beach Boys of Waikiki would stand on their long boards, and paddle out with outrigger paddles to take pictures of the tourists learning to surf. This is where the term "Beach Boy Surfing", another name for Stand Up Paddle Surfing, originates.

The sport benefits athletes with a strong 'core' workout. SUP'ing is popular at warm coastal climates and resorts, and is gaining in popularity as celebrities are sampling the sport, and cross-over athletes are training with SUP. SUPs have been spotted around the globe, anywhere where there is easy access to safe waters, as well as in the surfing lineups of the world.

The first "modern" surfer to bring Stand Up Paddle Surfing out of Hawaii and onto mainland USA was Vietnam veteran, Rick Thomas. In 2000, Rick - on a 11ft Muñoz board, and with a Leleo Kinimaka paddle - introduced California to the new sport.

Surfers have converted because of the versatility of the new sport. Stand up paddle boarding offers surfers the ability to catch more waves in a set, as well as offering a better view of incoming sets.

The boards are generally longer than 9 feet, and up to 14 feet in length, with features such as padded decks and concave hulls, and generally have one or three surfboard-style fins in the stern for stability.

Also a great way to cruise the various waterways inland such as the Norfolk Broads.

12'6" Surftech Competitor SUP - Joe Bark

12'6

£1,199.00

The Competitor 12'6 is a very popular, allround raceboard - its a board that works well in both flat and choppy water. For 2011 the construction of the Competitor has been modified with a Pro-Elite Carbon Expoxy build - so it has a Tuflite deck with a carbon hull - making it stiffer so enhances the glide and control of the board in chop.

The Competitor has been very successful in the USA with lots of top results in the many flat water and distance events. Joe Bark is the leading shaper for Prone and Distance boards in the world.

The Competitor fits in for someone who wants a fast, light board for fun expeditions inland, esturies and open sea - the best thing about this type of board is that as soon as you unpack it, pop the fin in its very easy to ride. It will also handle small waves - best to use a coiled leash on this board to minimize drag - when you are using a board of this quality think about buying a high quality carbon paddle.
