If slicing through a glassy bay while the sun peeps over the horizon sounds like your idea of paradise, you’re not alone. Welcome to the ever-growing world of stand up paddle boarding. No longer a niche sport exclusive to sand and surf, these days you can pack up your SUP and explore rivers, canals, lakes, dams and reefs all over Australia – and the world.
Quick, agile and surfy? Calm and cruisy? Stable enough for your morning sun salutation? Or why not all three.
