The SUP ( stand up paddling ) is a sport born in California that takes up the Polynesian tradition of pirogues: the athlete stands on what looks like a surfboard and moves using a long oar . The boards can be in resin, polyester or foam, while the choice of the paddleis very important .
Despite the apparent difficulty, the SUP is a relatively easy sport that guarantees great fun, especially if you make the most of the morning hours when the sea is calm and the air is clear.
You start on your knees and with the sea flat, but you can even get to ride the wave. The surfing technique with oar follows its own rules. The first lessons are the simplest and follow the safety rules common to those of surfing and windsurfing: life jacket and leash, a lace that can be closed at the knee or calf. When you are familiar with the paddle you can start thinking about facing the first waves. And here strikes love at first sight. Rowing and riding the ridges can give the feeling of being masters of the sea and the wind , you can drive the surf like a motorboat.
The Sup also has an added advantage: it doesn’t just need the wave , just the oars, so you can do it anywhere. The spaces widen and when the view is that of the Circeo the magic is assured.
