About Stand-Up Paddle Boarding
Early Polynesian cultures invented stand-up paddle boarding (SUP'ing), which is now the fastest growing water sport in the world. SUP'ing is similar to surfing, but instead of paddling the board and then standing up with the speed of a wave, one stands on a larger board and uses a paddle to move through the water.
Paddle boarding can take place in the surf or on calm water. The sport is not usually considered "extreme," and it is much less challenging than surfing for beginners. SUP'ing provides your body with a great workout, focussing on core strengthening. The sport is quickly taking off in Tofino because --similar to sea kayaking -- it provides excellent access to the calm inlets and sandy beaches throughout our area.
We strongly recommend taking at least one paddle boarding lesson before you rent or buy the equipment.
Stand-up paddle boards are available for rent in the town of Tofino and on MacKenzie Beach. The rental outfit will debrief you on SUP safety and etiquette, the safety tips at the right (or below) into consideration.
