SUP Croatia

SUP Croatia can be done anywhere along the coast. But SUP (Stand Up Paddling) as a sport has become a huge hit worldwide, it’s easy and super popular. Modern style of paddling on a board started on Waikiki beach, as “beach bay surfing“. Where teams of surfers started using paddles to catch the wave quickly. But also to have fun in the days when there were no waves. Today’s way of SUP became popular, when they made the first large and stable board, intended just for SUP This way it became accessible to the masses on all water surfaces, from sea to lakes and even rivers too.

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.
