Unlike traditional surfing where the rider sits until a wave comes, stand up paddlers stand on their boards and use a paddle to propel themselves through the water. This series of videos is from Hawaii, where stand up paddling [SUP], also called "stand up paddle surfing" and "stand up paddle boarding" originated. Among these videos, viewers will find interviews, general information about the sport, and actual lessons, too.
