Arriving on the shores of Singapore in 2009, this unique water sport, Stand Up Paddle (SUP), has since gained traction here. As its name suggests, this activity requires you to paddle through the waters whilst standing upright on your board.

It’s a test of finding your balance, navigating through the waves and paddling continuously—all at the same time!
