When will stand-up paddle boarding be added as a merit badge

When will stand-up paddle boarding be added as a merit badge?

Is there a stand-up paddle board MB? I know there’s an award that’s already in Scoutbook. If you’re asking them to add a MB, there’s a Bryan on Scouting blog here on suggesting new MBs.

Yes, there has been a SUP merit badge for years -there is just no way to add one to a scout using scoutbook.

I know there’s an award that’s already in Scoutbook.

Where? I have been to both QuickEntry/Enter MB and QuickEntry/Enter MB Req, and Standup Paddleboard and/or Paddleboarding is decidedly missing. Does it go by another name?

@KevinWhite1 there is no Merit Badge for SUP - https://www.scouting.org/programs/scouts-bsa/advancement-and-awards/merit-badges/

There is an Aquatic award - under the Awards tab of Scoutbook

Thanks, Donovan! I was confused because several boys earned this at summer camp this year, and I didn’t know how to put it into the system. It was listed right along with everything else and they had blue cards and everything.
