Straddie Stand Up Paddle is owned and operated by Chris Semple. He's been a surfer all his life and has elite-advanced level surfing skill and has been actively involved in the surfing boardriders club. Chris starting supping in 2012, on the days there was no surf. Pretty soon he was hooked. He started SUP surfing on the outer banks at Stradbroke Island that hardly anyone surfed. It’s a long way out in the ocean and easier to paddle out on a SUP board than paddle a surfboard by hand.
