Stand up paddling

Stand up paddling was founded on the tropical island of Hawaii, where lifeguards started standing on there surfboards to keep an eye on the people surfing. With a long paddle the person standing on the board is able to keep standing tall instead of the surfers who move forward laying down on their boards.
