I really want to try Stand-Up Paddle boarding. What do I need?

I live by the sea in Egypt, the conditions are generally windy but flat (it's a windsurfing haven). When the wind blows a certain way though we get big crashing white breakers on the shore. What are the conditions and gear needed to SUP?

    BOARD :Joe Bark 14 foot Expedition from the legendary South Bay shaper, made by Surftech. The sleek silhouette makes quick work of multi-mile trips, yet still feels stable in choppy seas, to get your hands (or feet) on the "Best Stand Up Paddleboard" of the year, stop by your local REI store or visit Colorado Kayak Supply, Outpost of Holland, Tahoe Paddle & Oar, the Kayak Connection, Great Outdoor Provision Co. or check Surftech.com for dealers in your area.

    PADDLE: Aquaglide aluminum adjustable length stand up paddle. The adjustable handle moves in 2 cm increments and secures in place with a snap-lock fitting.

    Werner Paddles recently unveiled new innovations in its Stand Up Paddle range at the Surf Expo Trade Show in Orlando Florida. The Werner Nitro is a smaller, Performance Core, carbon paddle and the new Adjustable 3-piece shaft which can be found on all of the SUP models.

    CONDITIONS dopend on what you want to do, if you want to ride waves then you need waves and a good wavemaking beach. If you would prefer a nice gentle experience then it is better with no waves

    A standup paddleboard (SUP) is a fun way to get out on the water and get in shape. There are five main types of paddleboards, according to the Standup Journal website.

    These include Surf, Touring, Inflatable, Racing and Yoga Stand Up Paddleboards

    Beginners should consider purchasing a large board and as paddleboarders gain competency and become more stable, then downsize your boards to gain maneuverability.
