It is an emerging global sport with a Hawaiian heritage. The sport is an ancient form of surfing, and reemerged as a way for surfing instructors to manage their large groups of students, as standing on the board gave them a higher viewpoint.There are hints that the ancient pacific islanders already used boards to ride waves and move on the water. According to that SUP was an early conjunction of the traditional Polynesian disciplines canoeing and surfing. With the invention of lightweight shortboards into the surfing scene, SUP felt a bit into oblivion but has recently been rediscovered and now is the fastest growing watersports since the 80s windsurf boom. People of every age and ability can learn to Stand-Up Paddle on any kind of water surface. Only condition: Being a good swimmer, in case you fall in. The eco-friendly new popular sport offers a perfect, holistic workout which is easy on the joints. In order to move the board, the whole body has to be under tension so it is a strong 'core' workout. But it’s not just the core, the legs are needed to balance the board and the arms do the paddling. So it is a very effective total body workout, which will change your body for the better within weeks. Plus, discovering stunning scenery from a SUP is much more fun than being on the treadmillFirst Steps You will need a board, a paddle, bikini/boardshorts/Lycra. Start in a calm bay with little waves and winds. The basic technique (paddle stroke and turns) can be learned in 1-2hours. Everybody can do it, from 5 year old kids to 70 year old seniors. You can give it a try yourself with information you find in books or on this website, but we would always recommend to take a lesson from a certified SUP instructor, to ensure you hold the paddle correctly, learn the right stroke technique and are safe even when it gets windy and choppy. Lessons on St. John. St. John with its beautiful beaches and warm water is the perfect place to learn to paddleboard. With a board you can get to those unspoiled, uncrowded places that cannot be reached by foot or car. A paddle from Cruz Bay to Francis or Maho takes about 1 to 2 hours for an advanced paddler.Petra from SUP-StJohn is an ISA-certified SUP Instructor and Fanatic Team Rider. She competed in the 2013 ISA World Championships and has taught hundreds of people how to paddle.Prices for Lessons 1-2 hours private lesson including board and carbon paddle rental: 75$ (one person)2 or more 65$ (per person) Prices for Rental30$ / hour Inflatable SUP (Fanatic 12’ Touring or 12’6” inflatable race board)30$ / hour Kids SUP / SUP Surf Board (Fanatic 8’10” Pro Wave)40$ / hour Carbon Race Board (Fanatic Falcon 12’6” or 14’) 65$ / day inflatable SUP (Fanatic 12’ Touring or 12’6” inflatable race board)65$ / day Kids SUP / SUP Surf Board (Fanatic 8’10” Pro Wave)75$ / day Carbon Race Board (Fanatic Falcon 12’6” or 14’) 220$ / week for any Board « less
