SUP Standards - New Standard in SUP Safety
The SUP industry has many different experts and organisations but its hard to find that information easily. SUP Standards hopes to solve this problem by providing a platform for anyone who is interested in paddle boarding to find out more and give themselves the best opportunity with the sport. SUP Standards is dedicated to ensuring that the rising sport of stand up paddle boarding is as safe an environment as possible for those taking to the water. The aim is to provide consistent safety and paddling standards and information for SUP.
One of the unique things about SUP Standards is that there are country specific sections allowing stand up paddlers to check for any specific standards, safety and reference links, in their own country. The SUP standards committee is a dedicated team of experts throughout the world who regularly contribute on a wide range of topics. The committee members all have a specific area of expertise that they focus on, this could be anything from SUP safety to mental health to Foiling.
