Stand-Up Paddling South Africa (SUPSA) is the national sports body for stand-up paddle board riding in South Africa. SUPSA was formalised in September 2010 in Cape Town after initial discussions in the previous year from among KZN SUP riders about the need for a body to regulate the sport in South Africa.
SUPSA caters for both SUP surfing and SUP racing disciplines within sport and sanctions national and regional contests to allow SUP riders to gain formal recognition within the sports community.
SUPSA also actively promotes the SUP lifestyle as a social value in itself and is engaged in facilitating awareness and education about the sport.
SUPSA’s mission is to grow the sport in South Africa and in so doing create linkages with Surfing South Africa and international surfing and SUP associations
