Girls Stand up Paddling & Custom SUP’s

Stand up paddle surfing is gaining momentum in the ladies surfing arena , now 6 years in the mainstream, SUP is starting to awaken female souls to get fit and get ripping on their local coastline waves.

Ladies take note – learning to surf a SUP will get you to places faster and help your wave knowledge to progress quicker.

The International Surfing Association is recognized by the International Olympic Committee as the World Governing Authority for Surfing. In the 2013 ISA world SUP championship last year in Lima Peru The ladies really put on a fantastic show with 24 women competing in both the SUP surfing and SUP racing categories.

Our Team GB hope for the SUP surfing was none other than my wife Abi barker- Smith who got through to round 2 of the WOMEN’S REPERCHARGE heats surfing very well, but not getting a good wave selection to progress her further in the competition.

However competing at this level really pushed her to train hard and get out into the water through the winter months in Wales.

And that’s one of the great things about Stand up paddle surfing and paddle boarding regardless whether you are surfing waves or not , the sport is getting you out on your board in a variety of conditions and staying agile and fit without freezing in the U.K’s cold water temps through winter.
