Stand up paddle Surfing, or Hoe he’e nalu in Hawaiian, is an up and coming sport that combines a Stand Up Paddle Board (sometimes abbreviated as SUP Board) with a stand up posture and a bladed paddle. Let’s take a closer look at this fascinating sport.
The History and Reemergence of the Paddle Board
It’s origination is Hawaiian and began as a way for Hawaiian surf instructors to maintain a better viewpoint of their students, as standing up gives better views of incoming waves. The term “Beach boy surfing” originated from Waikiki with surfers using these boards to get better viewpoints of tourists learning how to ride waves. The introduction of stand up paddle boarding into the modern scene is credited to the well known big wave surfers Dave Kalama and Laird Hamilton. Rick Thomas was the first of this generation’s surfers to use a stand up paddle board in the beaches of USA, taking a Munoz board with a Kinimaka paddle to California water in 2000.
SUP Surfing Advantages
This surfboard and surfing type has some tangible advantages:
- Surfers gain a better view of incoming waves, which means they are able to catch more of the waves to surf on.
- Paddle Surfing is great fun, and can provide many hours of enjoyment. Surfers don their wetsuits and paddle out for a great round a wave catching.
- Stand Up Paddle Boarding is known to give a great full body workout with an emphasis on the core muscles. As such, many cross trainers are beginning to favor the up and coming sport as a great way to maintain their physique and endurance.
The requirements for an enjoyable experience include a paddle board, paddle, chosen clothing, skin and eye sun protection, and a personal flotation device.
Paddle Board prices vary, we have a great selection on our Paddle Boards page, and the boards vary in size to suit the user’s experience level. The boards are usually longer than ordinary surf boards, being about 9 to 12 feet in length. Flatter, wider boards benefit the novice as they require a more stable ride on the water. Narrower boards are for those that have already been enjoying the sport for some time and don’t need as much assistance in balancing. Paddles should be chosen based on your height, with a standard one being 6 to 9 inches taller than the rider (although some manufacturers claim that 8 to 10 inches is a better decision).
Temperatures should be noted before venturing out on the water, as hypothermia can occur in colder climates. Consider a Wetsuit if these types of conditions could be present. In warmer climates anything that can respond to your movements and is comfortable when wet, such as a Rash Vest and Board Shorts or any standard swim wear would be suitable.
If surfing in the US it is of note that the US coast guard now maintains that SUPs are vessels. As such, those participating in this sport in US waters are required to wear floatation devices when at certain beaches.
