Stand-Up Paddleboarding

Stand-Up Paddleboarding (SUP) is the fastest growing watersport in the world just now, it is fun to do and easy to learn.  It involves standing on a large surfboard using a long-handled paddle.  Och Aye Canoe uses inflatable SUPs which pack down to a backpack size, they are a minimum of 10 feet long with triple fins, offering more stability. It is possible to kneel or sit on the boards until gaining confidence to try standing up.  Each board has a leash meaning you do not lose contact with your board.
