Stand Up Paddling(SUP) is the fastest growing watersport in the world at the moment. It involves a rider on a board (larger than the one of surf), who holds a paddle, either standing or on his knees and paddles and it has gained such popularity due to its relatively easy learning curve and wide appeal.
It is a sport that doesn't require previous knowledge of surf, SUP or balance. At the beginning of every course we do an introduction to demonstrate proper techniques, how to stand on the board, hold the paddle and the basic information that will get any participant going safely on the water. It can be addressed to people of any age 8-85. We have special groups for children and provide them with all the necessary equipment and safety gear.
Apart from the classic boards we also have the BIG SUP, our tool for BIG fun!!!

A few tips for those who try SUP for the first time:
If you are a beginner let your first time be in calm, flat water and keep in mind you could be falling! That’s the fun part!
Get the board out into in water so the fin is free from hitting the bottom.
Start out on your knees and take a few strokes on each side of the board.
Slowly, stand up with one foot at a time and stay in the middle of the board with your feet parallel to the stringer – about shoulder width apart.
Keep a slight bend in the knees and your core centered over the board.
Make sure you have these in mind!!!
Always hold the paddle from the top of the handle. Lots of people always want to hold the paddle like a broomstick, with both hands on the shaft. Don’t do it! Always grab it from the top handle with one hand and the other on the shaft.
Keep your feet parallel and spread shoulder width apart. Everyone wants to get in a surf stance, but that makes paddling on the flat water ten times harder. Plus, you will fall. Save your surf stance for the surf, and keep your feet parallel with toes pointed toward the nose.
Make sure your grip on the paddle is shoulder width apart. Short grips will give you a powerless stroke.
Dip the blade fully into the water and take a long stroke, letting your large back muscles do the work. Many people put the full brunt of the stroke on the arms. Let the big back muscles do the brunt of the work.
