Why is Stand up Paddle Boarding so Popular?

A Brief on Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP) 

Stand Up Paddle Boarding, also widely known as SUP, is one of the fastest growing sports around the world now. Stand Up Paddle Boarding is basically for all levels of water sports lovers. What a SUP rider would do is just to stand upon a large paddle board and uses paddle(s) to maneuver through the water. 

A lot of evidence have shown that we human beings have a long history with paddle boarding. Some historians found that wooden paddle boards were used many centuries back by natives in ancient Polynesian culture, South America, and Africa to move from one place to another, and sometimes just to catch waves for fun. 

Although SUP was derived from paddle boarding, it has a much broader application of activities including the use of arms while kneeling, standing, or lying on a slender and long paddle board to move around the water. And in recent years, Yoga exercising on stand up paddle boards is also being widely applied. 

Some SUP enthusiasts take their dog with them when paddling.

The statics in recent years have shown that Stand Up Paddle Boarding has become one of the fastest-growing sports, especially in North America and European countries. Why? The reason is fairly simple, SUP is for all
