Stand up paddle boarding (SUP), Hoe he’e nalu in hawaiian language, is a sport native to Hawaii that allows you to travel over water paddling standing on a board.
The SUP is a sport for all that can be practiced at any age and at any level. You just need a board and a paddle, in addition to a body of water (sea, lake or river), to have fun exercising your body and stay healthy, working synergistically on legs, back, arms and abs, restoring balance and postural muscles.
