Stand up paddle boarding was born of surfing, and it’s not surprising that it has its origins in Hawaii. It is a relatively easy, low-impact water sport, notably safe for all ages. You’ll find variations of the sport in Mauritius, from flatwater paddling, racing, surfing, whitewater SUP, and even yoga and fishing. Health gurus consider SUP boarding as an excellent workout, helping upper body training to leg work and core strength building.
