"Get up, stand up” is a stand-up paddle boarder motto
Stand up PaddleBoarding, or SUP Boarding, originated in Hawaii in the 1960s — surfing instructors would stand on the boards to look for waves and increase their visibility while teaching. Realizing this was actually pretty fun, more people started standing on the boards to tour on the water, not just surf.
Paddle boards are similar to surf boards but designed for flat water touring rather than catching waves, propelled by paddles rather than wave action. A new generation of paddle boards are also making "surfing" waves in rivers more possible too. Unlike surfing, where you stand sideways on the board, for paddle-boarding, you stand with your feet squared facing the front of the board for most flatwater SUPing.
