- Because you're standing, you get to see more of the water you're fishing, including more of what's under the surface. This makes them an excellent choice for sight fishing.
- Standing up also means you can use your full range of motion when you cast, giving you the most distance and accuracy of any paddling option.
- SUPs are extremely portable. Even the biggest boards weigh only 30 pounds or so, and there are a few inflatables on the market you can easily check on a plane.
