Stand up paddle surfing and stand up paddle boarding (SUP), (Hoe he’e nalu in the Hawaiian language) are sports originating in Hawaii as an off-shoot of surfing.

Paddlers race on lakes, large rivers and canals, ride breaking waves, and glide over long distances along sea coasts, often using tail winds to aid the trip.
