The sport of Stand Up Paddling, also known as "Beachboy Surfing" or simply "SUP," is spreading in popularity all over the world. A great core workout and fun to do, the ROW Adventure Center has a fleet of boards that we use for guided tours on Lake Coeur d'Alene and rentals.
The popularity of the modern sport of SUP has its origination in the Hawaiian Islands. In the early 1960s the Beach Boys of Waikiki would stand on their long boards and paddle out with camera in hand ready take pictures of the tourists learning to surf. This is where the term "Beach Boy Surfing" was coined. In SUP, one can paddle on the open ocean, in harbors, on lakes, rivers or any large body of water. One of the advantages of Stand Up Paddling is the angle of visibility. Because of the standing height over the water one can see both deeper into the water and further across the surface of the water, allowing better visualization of features others in boats or kayaks could not view.
So come try it out and join a SUP Tour this summer on Lake Coeur d'Alene! We've got rentals and boards for sale too at our Coeur d'Alene Adventure Center on 2nd and Sherman. Please call 208-770-2517 or 866-836-9340 to book your trip.
