Stand-up paddle boarding is quickly catching on with first-time participants. The Outdoor Foundation's 2013 Outdoor Participation Report listed SUP as the most popular outdoor activity among first-time participants.
There are many levels of SUPing allowing anyone to easily pick up the sport. You can experience a range of SUP from paddling on flat water or catching waves to even doing yoga work-outs on the board.
SUP rentals has helped increase the popularity of the sport . You can find paddle board rentals almost anywhere near bodies of water. Rentals are a great way to try out the sport and avoid the hassle of storing the boards which can reach heights of 13 feet (imagine trying to find a spot for that in your apartment or carrying a SUP up a spiral staircase... "PIVOT")! But the drawbacks of renting a paddle board are only being able to rent during business hours and spring and summer seasons, the cost, time-limits, waiting-lists during peak SUP hours, and restrictions on where you are allowed to paddle.
So what if you could own your own SUP? What if storing a SUP would be as easy as storing your shoes? What if you could travel on a plane with SUP with zero hassle or oversize baggage fees? What if you could ride a bike and transport a 11'6" SUP? What if you could go night paddle boarding with your friends?
