The Sport of Standup Paddleboarding (SUP) is exploding worldwide! Men, women and children of all ages, from all backgrounds, living on or near every conceivable body of water are drawn to the sport for its ease of access, simple equipment, excellent core exercise potential and endless learning curve. From paddling the flat water of lakes and rivers to surfing the beach breaks and point breaks of the world. Standup Paddleboarding is a sport anyone can enjoy!

"The release of our REAL Standup Instructional DVD was a huge eye opener for us. What we have learned through developing our kiteboarding instructional programs is easily applicable to the sports of surfing and standup paddleboarding, making them easier, faster and more fun to learn. Our REAL coaches have helped bring REAL to the forefront of instructional based programs of all sports worldwide, including skiing and snowboarding. The roll out of these instructional programs into the surf industry is already "making waves" across the country. The bottom line is that people value their time and want professional services and dedicated staff to help them learn these new sports at the fastest rate possible, while also delivering the highest end experience available. This is what REAL is all about, and we are excited about this next step in our business." - Trip Forman REAL Co-Founder
