- With the usual short period swell we get in Sydney SUPs get jostled by the chop,
Stronger stroke at the take-off,
Quickly adapt to different boards,
Easier to get up than from lying-down paddling,
Easier to take off by being hit from behind by white water, and
All the benefits of surfing a long-board.
- Hard to keep your knees on the board as wide and your feet would be;
Have to get up from kneeling at take-off;
Some SUP people will say it's the lamest thing they have ever seen.
