Stand Up Paddle Boarding
Stand up paddling or SUP as many people call it- is a surface water sport that is a progressive form of surfing. The surfer uses a paddle to move through the water while standing on a very large surfboard. Stand up paddling is derived from its Polynesian roots and has been around for a longer than we really now, but this adventurous sport just recently filtrated into San Juan Del Sur!
