SUP – stand up paddle board

Stand up paddle board or SUP, is one of our most appreciated and popular experiences. SUP is a fantastic water sport that suits everyone. At our place, families with children enjoy SUP during vacations, school students on kick-offs, colleagues on conferences, and retirees with their grandchildren. Everyone can paddle SUP!

What is stand up paddle board?

Stand up paddle boarding is a water sport where you stand upright on a board and propel yourself forward using a single-sided paddle. There are both rigid and inflatable SUP boards, and the boards are typically slightly larger than a surfboard. You stand in the middle of the board and use the paddle to steer and control your speed. It is a versatile sport that can be performed on both flat and wavy water.

SUP in all waters.

What most people appreciate about paddling our SUP adventures, aside from it being a fun challenge and experience, is the opportunity to get close to our beautiful nature. There are few things that compare to gliding on a SUP board along a calm river, surrounded by reeds and greenery on a beautiful summer day. At some of our branches, you can paddle on lakes and rivers, but it’s also perfect to paddle SUP on a calm evening at the sea while the sun sets. So, paddling in the ocean works just as well. The waves provide a bit more challenge, but after a while, most people start to feel comfortable.

Is it difficult to paddle SUP?

You don’t need any prior experience to paddle SUP, our instructors are always available to show you the technique so you can get out on the board. Our boards from Kona are stable and suitable for both beginners and experienced paddlers. They also work great for SUP yoga. The first paddle strokes may feel unstable for most people, and standing on a SUP board will definitely challenge your balance. But that’s part of the charm, and after a while, you’ll discover that you’re mastering the SUP board more and more. That’s what makes SUP such an incredibly fun and rewarding water sport – you quickly go from being a slightly wobbly beginner to feeling confident.
