What is SUP? - Stand Up Paddle Boarding, (SUP), is a relatively new water-sport in Northern Ireland that is exploding into popularity.
Stand up paddleboarding involves standing on a super wide, long board and propelling yourself through the water using a long paddle. This great new activity is healthy, invigorating and promotes balance, strength and general fitness when performed correctly. SUP can be low impact and is attainable for everyone, suitable for individuals, couples and families
