Our friends at Brittas Bay Surf School will be happy to introduce you to SUP. Stand Up Paddleboarding, abbreviated as SUP, is a new and exciting sport. Stand up paddleboarding has origins in West Africa and in Polynesia and now people are paddling on rivers, lakes, and oceans all over the world. It is accessible to a wide range of people and a great way to get fit, explore the seas and surf the ocean.
SUP uses a large stable surf type board with plenty of width and volume. Starting in a standing position a long single ended paddle can be used to propel the board forwards. Stand up paddleboarding is currently one of the fastest-growing watersports in the world and Wicklow & the East Coast of Ireland is one of the best locations to discover this new exhilarating experience.
