What is SUP Surfing?

In SUP Surfing and although similar in shape to a traditional surfboard a SUP surfboard is larger and more buoyant. The SUP surfer uses a single bladed paddle to propel themselves through the water or on to a wave whilst standing up on the board. In terms of scoring a competitor whilst showing good overall surfing skills must also be seen to be using the paddle in three key ways to gain greater points over their fellow competitors. These are; Brace, Pivot and Force Multiplier to achieve more sharper and powerful turns.
