SUP Croatia is becoming more popular
Historically, river based and coastal cultures have stood up within their canoes and paddled standing for thousands of years. Conceptually therefore, the idea of standing and paddling using an extended canoe paddle is far from being a new concept. But Laird Hamilton and Dave Kalama developed paddle surfing for the modern water sports world. The first “modern” surfer to bring Stand up Paddle surfing out of Hawaii to the mainland United States was Vietnam veteran Rick Thomas. SUP offers surfers the ability to catch more waves in a set, as well as better views of incoming sets. From a contemporary standpoint and as a sport, stand up paddle surfing really began taking off after 2005.
