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!
