Aloha & Welcome at the Stand Up Paddle Scene in Vienna!
Yes, you read correctly... the latest sports trend, Stand Up Paddle (short: SUP) from Hawai has gained massive popularity within the past few years and has even made it into metropolitan cities with no access to the ocean, like Vienna. The best thing about SUP is, it can be exercised anywhere on the water, from rivers, lakes to oceans including bays. Check out the SUP-Center Vienna locations in Vienna:1.
