"Rio", Spanish for "river" signifies the explosive growth of inland and flat water paddling. The Rio namesake also pays homage to the founder's close ties in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil which is the next Rio SUP location scheduled to open next year.
About Stand Up Paddle Boarding:
Stand Up Paddle Boarding, also known as SUP, is the fastest growing outdoor recreational sports in the world. A combination of surfing and canoeing or kayaking, this sport originated in Hawaii less than a decade ago and has quickly spread worldwide. Using a canoe-like paddle and standing atop a larger version of a traditional surfboard, paddlers propel themselves through the water with side to side paddle strokes. Stand-up paddling offers a core workout with a cadence much like swimming or cycling. Many people who are unable to run or cycle because of injuries or arthritis, find that they are able to become active again by paddling.
