About SUP on Buzau River (River Stand Up Paddling)

River SUP on the Buzau River is the newest and most adventurous water activity in Romania!

If we used to go down the Buză in rafting boats or kayaks, now we invite you to explore it paddling on an inflatable surfboard!

What is RSUP, or River Stand Up Paddling?

Well, as well as an excellent core strength workout, RSUP means exploring a river that alternates the calm of the Delta with mini-repeats that capture your full attention! You'll paddle upright, learning to tackle rapids and small waterfalls for an hour and a half. It's hard to hold out any longer!

SUP on the Buzau river is a joy for the mind and body!

If you want to forget about it all... well, you've come to the right place! You'll be required to pay full attention and concentrate which leaves you with tired shoulders, neck and feet but a big smile on your face.  

What is SUP, or Stand Up Paddling?

Well, besides a great core strength workout, SUP means 2 hours of freedom. Silence. Inner dialogue or perhaps a chat with fellow adventurers. Find the full history of this wonderful sport in the FAQ section but if you don't have the patience here's how it started, in a nutshell (taken from supconnect.com): "Stand Up Paddle boarding (SUP), the act of propelling oneself on a floating platform using a paddle or stick originated thousands of years ago and on many continents, but its current form and popularity originated in Hawaii in the 1900s . Ancient forms of SUP have been found as early as 1,000 BC in Peru, Israel, Italy, China and beyond. Unlike those modern forms of SUP, where a surfboard-like raft is used, it has a much clearer heritage dating back to the 1900s and being linked to a few characters such as Duke Kahanamoku and Dave Kalama. The sport has gained exponential popularity and California has served as a catalyst for its worldwide adoption. In 2005 SUP, which until then had been almost entirely a surfing discipline, began to diversify into competitions, tours, river rafting, yoga and fishing. Its surfing heritage, along with its various disciplines, have made the sport attractive and accessible to everyone around the world, paving the way for its global growth and enthusiastic adoption."

It is believed to have originated in Peru, South America.

More than 2000 years ago, the locals used to assemble reeds into canoes or rafts, which they manoeuvred with a paddle, sometimes standing up. They called them "Caballito de Totora" and would take them out across the surf, out into the Pacific! On the way back they used the waves to increase their speed and it is believed that the most skilled did it standing up!

After 1940 professional surfers Dave Kalama and Laird Hamilton of Maui, Hawaii birthed the recreational SUP using long paddles to move their longboards into the surf.

The early 2000s was a boom for SUP, today coastal resorts abound with rental centres and stand up boarding schools.

 

From here to the "assault" on rivers was just a step, today it is fashionable to "surf" on the natural waves of rivers that allow this.

And from 2020 we invite you to try with us on the Buzău River!
