Stand up and paddle, it's easier than it looks
Stand up and paddle

Stand up and Paddle is a relatively new sport which is suitable for anyone who has enough physical fitness to take a one hour walk and can swim at least 50 metres. Based upon an old sport, SUP is like Longboard/Malibu surfing, except you stand for the whole session and use a paddle to get around. You do not need surfing skills to stand up and paddle.

In Jervis Bay the operators of Stand up and Paddle are a mobile company, this enables them to come to you or your favourite water location by arrangement, but you can find them most mornings paddling around Currambene Creek.

Stand up paddling is best enjoyed early morning when the waters are calm and peaceful, stand up and paddle start their activities from 7am and other times by arrangement providing water conditions allow.
