Stand Up Paddling is originally from Hawaii as an offshoot of surfing. It´s super fun and relaxing way to spend the day on the water and it´s easy to learn. The basic idea is to stand and paddle on a big surfbord and get a whole new perspective on lakes and rivers. Stand Up Paddling is also superior full-body exercise that developes your aerobic capasity, muscular endurance and balance. SUP is perfect for adventure seekers as well as for those seeking a relaxing way to enjoy the nature.
Joensuu happens to be one of the greatest places in Finland to do Stand Up Paddling thanks to our various lakes, rivers and channels. Arctic Trainers brought SUP to Joensuu in 2014.
