With Stand up Paddle being one of the world's fastest growing sports, it just makes sense that we keep hearing so many new paddlers say that they're "addicted".  This addiction is then obviously being passed on to many more new paddlers, which in turn is why SUP is growing at such a rapid pace!  But, how do you know if your're truly addicted? Well, we've come up with a few ideas.  Take a look and then it will be your turn to keep the list going!
