Forgotten until the 1960s, standup paddleboarding resurfaced when Hawaiian long boarders started using paddles to better see students and monitor incoming swells. The sport has spread like wildfire due to its easy learning curve, low-impact, full-body workout, and suitability for most ages and abilities. SurfSUPnj, LLC, has ridden that wave both literally and metaphorically by inducting new riders in private, semiprivate, and telepathic lessons. SurfSUPnj's instructors are certified in water rescue, CPR, and first aid with an AED, and they possess level 2 PaddleFit certification earned through double-elimination paddleboarding games of chicken.
