Stand-up paddle surfing (SUP), or in the Hawaiian language Hoe he'e nalu, is an ancient form of surfing. It has recently re-emerged as a way for surfing instructors to manage large groups of students. Standing on the board gives instructors increased visibility of what is going on around them — such as incoming swells.
The sport provides athletes with a strong core workout. SUPing is popular at warm coastal climates and resorts, and SUPs have been spotted around the globe — anywhere that there is easy access to safe waters — as well as in the surfing lineups of the world.
