'SUP With Stand-Up Paddling?07:41


You may have seen them gliding along on the nearest body of water — standing on what look like surfboards, paddling with an extra-long paddle. Stand-up paddling has exploded in popularity in the past few years.

Devotees are competing in "SUP" races across dangerous bodies of water and even taking paddle boards down the Colorado River.

  • Christian Del Rosario, owner of Surfari Standup Paddle and Surf Shop in Manchester-by-the-Sea, Massachusetts and Nantucket Surfari on Cape Cod.
