PAT Eastwood is inviting people to jump on board the latest surfing craze: stand up paddleboarding (SUP).

The Capricorn Coast Learn 2 Surf teacher said the sport had shown a huge increase in popularity this year and was perfect for local waters.

"SUP is great for fitness, core strength and conditioning, as well as being awesome fun," Pat said.

"One thing that is great fun is down-winding, which is paddling with the wind and waves behind you and riding the ocean swells.

"I am a true convert and SUP more than I surf a standard surfboard nowadays."

Pat said SUP was suitable for all kinds of water conditions.

"(Paddleboards) are surfed, used in white water rivers, lakes, and pretty much anywhere there is water," he said.

Pat will be holding a free Have a go at Stand Up Paddleboarding session on Sunday from 8.30am to 11.30am at the southern entrance to the Causeway Lake.

Boards and information will be provided.
