Stand up paddle (SUP) in Iceland

 About Standup paddleboarding.

Stand up paddle boarding (SUP) is a sport originating in Hawaii as an offshoot of surfing. Stand up paddle boarders maintain an upright stance on their boards and use a paddle to propel themselves through the water. There are various modes of stand up paddling, including flat water paddling for outdoor recreation, fitness, or sightseeing, racing on lakes, large rivers and canals, surfing on ocean waves, paddling in river rapids (whitewater SUP), SUP Yoga, and even fishing. Stand up paddleboarding is fun, safe and everyone needs to try it once.
