Stand Up Paddle Surfing is an ancient form of surfing. It can be traced back to the very early days of Polyenisia. It's most recent history dates back to the 1940's when the beachboys (surf instructors) on waikki beach used to stand up and paddle out to the break using a one bladed paddle. The reasons for this are 2 fold. First it allowed them to have a better visibility over their group of surfing instructors and allowed them to call the sets easier as their upright position meant that they could see the swell long before the prone surfers. Secondly it allowed them to keep their wealthy customers camera dry and allow them to take pictures of them surfing.

Fast forward to the first part of this century and the paddle made a return to surfing in the hands of some of the world's most famous watermen. They were re discovering stand up paddle surfing to allow them to keep in shape for the bigger days of tow surfing as well as adding a new dimension to their skills.

The modern Stand Up Paddle boards allow you to catch waves a lot earlier than even the longboarders.
Paddle surfing not only is a great way to catch waves, it also doubles as a core fitness exercise using your core stomach muscles.
