The water sport that’s making waves around the globe? Stand-up paddleboarding. From its start in Hawaii to its popularity along the mangroves of Key West, see the best spots to “walk on water.”
Stand-up paddleboarding, also known as SUP, began in the 1960s in Hawaii with the “Beach Boys of Waikiki” paddling out on their long boards to take photos of tourists learning to surf.
