What' SUP Barbados

A couple years ago, I was introduced to Stand Up Paddling by one of my best friends when SUPing was just in its rebirth and still very new to Barbados. My friend had an extra board that was a little to small for him and he invited me to come along for a leisurely paddle. After my first experience standing above the water and seeing so much more than I ever had when Surfed (on a regular Surf board), I was hooked. Within months I had bought my own board and was trying everything from SUP Surfing to Races to long down-wind paddles. Over the next two years, more and more people would approach me as I was returning to the beach from a Paddle or surf session and ask me to teach them this exciting new sport or hobby. My board was way to small to teach most beginners on and some of my friends even took offense that I refused (trust me guys, you should thank me). By December 2011, I had decided to take the plunge and set up this company to help people learn and love SUPing as much as I do. Armed with only my wits (and my arms),in March 2012, myself and my cousin Mikie attended a WPA – World Paddleboard Association Certification course in Jupiter beach, Florida to seal the deal and get What SUP Barbados off the ground and moving (or on the water if you prefer). Of course there were a few small issues, like quitting my 9 to 5 job, buying a vehicle and building a trailer and of course lets not forget the Boards and Paddles! As you can hopefully see, it all worked out and today we are the best Mobile SUP Company in Barbados!
