Standup paddling is best described as "Yoga on Water" ™
SUPSNZ is your one stop SUP shop. We distribute Starboard, the best and largest offering in Stand Up Paddle boarding (SUP) equipment, directly via our online shop and through selected resellers around New Zealand.
Our goal is to nurture the growth of SUP in New Zealand, by participating in and creating events that are helping to build a strong Stand Up community, and enabling you to connect with each other, share water adventures, and learn more about the sport.
“SUP is what you make of it. Take your board everywhere and you have fun wherever you go.”
I am passionate about SUP; for fun, fitness and adventure; on flat water or surf; ocean, lake or river. I want everyone to share the stoke you experience when you step on a board; to be taken away from the busyness of everyday life and enter the world of an adventurer. To feel liberated, empowered, alive.
For Kiwi Waterman Jeremy Stephenson, SUP is a way of life. Whether his morning’s spent catching waves and the afternoon racing, or he’s simply paddling his kids around the rocks, every day is an awesome day.
Jeremy has been SUP surfing for nearly six years. He also foil-boards, tow-surfs, and ocean yacht-races, has been an Olympic rep sailor and NZ Jet Ski Champion and enjoys water-skiing, windsurfing, skiing and mountain–biking.
