noun - A stand up paddle board (SUP) is a type of paddle board used in stand up paddle surfing. The stand up paddle is used to propel an individual across the surface of the water while standing on a surfboard. The paddle consists of a blade, shaft and handle.

New custom SUP board prices range from US$600 to US$1500, and most use glass-reinforced plastic construction using polyester or epoxy resin that is compatible with the polyurethane or expanded polystyrene foam used in the core. The boards are generally longer than 9 feet (3 m), and can be longer than 12 feet (4 meters), with features such as padded decks and concave hulls; they generally have one or three surfboard-style fins in the stern for tracking.
