Stand Up Surfing
Stand Up Surfing, which originated in the Pacific islands, has become the retro sport that came and didn’t leave. It came with celebration due to the resurgence of an important cultural element of the sport and opportunity to explore the roots of surfing, and it has since been transformed into something unique to itself. When once it was used to surf waves so small you couldn’t ride them on any other board, Stand Up Paddle surfing has seen guys surfing massive waves like Peahi (Jaws) and even chucking mean airs. There are interisland races going on each year, many use them to get exercise while exploring the reef from above, and some people even use them as a a base for spearfishing and diving.
