What does SUP mean you ask?
SUP stands for “Stand Up Paddleboard.” Stand-up paddleboards, which resemble surfing’s longboards, stretch 10 to 12 feet and are geared more toward balance than speed. A single long-necked paddle is used to move the board through the water. For dog owners, it opens up a whole new way to experience water sports with their pooch.
