Stand-Up-Paddleboards or SUP for short, has come to Jocassee & Keowee. According to SUP World Magazine, “stand up has become such a diverse and vibrant sport it defies strict definition, leaving its early roots as elusive as its modern surge into popularity. Even now only two things seem constant: we stand while paddling a surﬁng-style craft and we use a long paddle to propel the craft forward.
Eclectic Sun rents all types of paddleboards from beginner boards to nice fiberglass touring boards. We are a dealer for Riviera fiberglass and rugged inflatable stand-up paddleboards. Riviera boards are only available at your local surf shop and that would be us. If you are interested in purchasing a top of the line quality paddleboard please contact us.
According to the Outdoor Participation Report 2013, Stand up paddling had the highest percentage of first time participants with 56 percent of participants trying it for the first time. Stand Up Paddling Eclectic Sun looks forward to the expansion of this new recreation in our area.
