Stand-up paddling (SUP) means standing on a special surfboard and propelling yourself on the water with a paddle. In this full body workout, stand-up paddlers strengthen their balance as well as various groups of muscles in the trunk, shoulders and back. It’s good for relaxation and for physical and mental balance and also improves concentration, endurance and coordination. SUP yoga and SUP fitness combine familiar training exercises with the paddleboard.

As well as many places at the numerous lakes around the capital city, such as Wassersportcenter Berlin and whatSUPberlin at Wannsee and NALANI Supsurfing at Müggelsee, visitors to Berlin can also explore the city by SUP on the river Spree. Operators such as the StandUpClub Berlin in Treptow-Köpenick and Pura Vida SUP at Rummelsburger Bucht offer board hire, as well as various courses and tours.
