Stand Up Paddling (SUP) is a popular water sport in Hong Kong. It looks supercool to do SUP but is it an easy sport to learn? SAHK organised a fun day at the beach in June and Evi Pfister shares her experience in the following article.

On a cloudy Sunday in June a small group gathered in Stanley to try out SUP. After sorting out the right size board for everyone and with some basic instructions, we headed out.

Luckily the sea was calm and therefore the waves did not cause much challenges. The beginners started with paddling on their knees first and then as they found their balances on the boards worked their way up to standing. We also had a few experienced paddlers and they gladly helped out with tips and made sure none of the kids got lost or paddled too far away from the crowd.

It was a fun morning and a great end to the activity with a nice lunch at one of the restaurants in Stanley.
