Stand-up paddleboard (SUP board) refers to a water-sports board that is primarily used in kayaking and surfing. Unlike traditional surfboards, these boards are longer, lighter, and wider, making them easier to balance during water sports. A stand-up paddleboard is operated by standing upright and propelling it with a long paddle. Stand-up paddle boarders use the board to maintain their balance when they are challenged by waves in the water, depending on the temperature of the water and the air around them. In general, paddleboards are used for sailing underwater, or surfing on offshore and flat-water lakes and rivers. In addition to this, SUP boards find widespread applications in large swimming pools, lakes, inland waterways, and canals. Stand-up paddleboarding is gaining traction as a water sport among swimming, Pilates, and yoga enthusiasts.
