Paddleboarding is a surface water sport in which participants are propelled by a swimming motion using their arms while lying or kneeling on a paddleboard or surfboard in the ocean. A derivative of paddleboarding is Stand Up Paddle (SUP) boarding. A paddleboard looks a lot likea surf board.
It has a broad flat "grippy" surface that's easy to stand on. Enthusiasts use one long paddle, similar to a canoe paddle, to propel themselves on leisurely tours or, for the more adventurous,  to ride serious waves.

Paddleboarding is usually performed in the open ocean, with the participant paddling and surfing unbroken swells to cross between islands or journey from one coastal area to another.

SUP or Stand Up Paddleboarding is quickly becoming the hottest trend along the coastlines. One of the best ways to see the shore, and waters you float over, you can make your trips slow paced and relaxing, or catch waves and surf. Paddleboarding can be a great way to exercise without the staleness of a gym.
