Stand Up Paddling in Austin is a great way to enjoy the water in Central Texas. Come out and try stand up paddling for yourself. It's a great workout, a wonderful way to enjoy the outdoors, and easy to learn!
SUP, stand up paddle surfing, stand up paddle boarding, beach boy surfing or Hoe He'e Nalu, whatever you call it, stand up paddling is a great sport for young and old alike. In short, it's a cross between surfing and canoeing. You stand on a very large surfboard made specifically for the sport and use a long paddle to propel yourself across the water. It sounds simple enough, and it is, yet it offers enough challenge to keep even the world's most skilled surfers and watermen busy trying to master the sport.
