Stand-Up Paddleboarding is a really hot sport right now.

Paddleboarding is a great way to explore the gentle waters around Harbour Town and Hilton Head Island. You can take lessons when you first get started, or if you have some experience, you can simply rent a board and paddle and go out exploring on your own.
This sport is quickly catching on and it’s becoming extremely popular. Don’t miss the tide! Keep up with the current and check out this cool new activity – you are sure to have a great time. Stand-Up Paddleboarding may be one of the big things right now, but it’s still a relatively young sport. The invention of SUP is often attributed to the Waikiki Beach Boys of Hawaii in the 1960’s. No doubt the idea came from a combination of surfing and canoe paddling and since many cultures around the world have stood up to paddle their canoes or crafts, the idea itself has been around for a very long time.
From a modern standpoint, however, the sport of Stand-Up Paddleboarding really only began to take off around 2005. In the last decade, it has seen an exponential rise in popularity and today many more people are familiar with this exciting activity than ever before.
