Most locals know the SUP Shack in the Santa Cruz Harbor, as it has become a go-to spot since it opened in 2011. Stand-up paddle boards or SUP are growing as a great way to experience the waters of Santa Cruz.
Owner and founder of the SUP Shack, Trudie Ransom has been drawn toward these boards since she initially tried one in their native Hawaii. Though the origin of the stand-up paddle board has been greatly debated, Standup Journal writer Marina Andriola got it right when she wrote, “The Hawaiians pioneered stand up paddling for fun!”
