Vancouver is surrounded by waterways and gives great opportunities to spend time on the water. Especially when the sun decides to come out an play. So why not try out one of the fastest growing aquatic sports known as Stand Up Paddleboarding, also known as SUP.

Imagine standing on a surfboard but having a paddle to propel you along. That's actually how it got its origin from in Hawaii. However, unlike regular surfing, the wonderful thing about SUP is that it can be very easy to learn. Women have a tendency to be able to do this easier than guys since they have a lower center of gravity, but don't let it deter you. This is a sport that even celebrities are have known to get into.
