Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) is a great way to get out on the water, to enjoy as much or as little exercise as you want and to see the coastline and marine wildlife. We spoke to our friends at Algarve SUP recently, to find out a little bit more about this fast growing sport and how you can get involved whilst you are on your next holiday. Here’s what they had to say.
Have you ever wondered what its like to explore the ancient caves of the Algarve Coastline or to roam freely down the hidden waterways of the Natural Park of the Ria Formosa Lagoon near Faro or Olhao?
Imagine yourself on a state of the art Stand Up Paddle board on the still waters of the Ria Formosa near Faro airport as the sun dips below the horizon while you, your family and friends have a private viewing point of the planes arriving to touch down on the runway. Magical!!!
Taking an early morning tour along the stunningly sculptured coastline of the Algarve will certainly leave you with golden memories that you will treasure for a lifetime. Paddling through some of the most amazing caves, not only in Europe, but in the world. Coastal features that have been formed by nature over millions of years. Breathtaking to say the least!!!
Both ZEN SUP and Algarve SUP have been providing Stand Up Paddle Boarding Lessons and Tours in the Algarve over the past 5 years and are renowned for high quality instruction, service and enjoyment across all their services.
We do our upmost to give you, your family and friends one of the best on beach, on water and in cave experiences that you can have anywhere in the world. From first contact we make it our business to begin tailoring the experience for your total enjoyment. We endeavour to match the timing, conditions and locations to ensure your complete satisfaction. And we also try to follow up with some memorable photos to share the memories with loved ones back home.
We cater for all ages, ranging from 4 up to 76 years (actual client stats) and sometimes have 3 generations on the water all at the same time, enjoying this unique sport together. We accommodate individuals, couples, families, stag and hen parties, yoga groups, team building and others.
We use only the highest quality of equipment from one of the leading manufacturers in the water sports industry and we teach to the highest standards recognised by surfing and SUP communities and authorities around the world.
Why not come along with us on one of our tours and experience first hand for yourself why they say that Stand Up Paddle is the faster growing water sport in the world and why its also one of the best ways to explore, enjoy and get in shape (and stay in shape) while on the water.
Looking forward to hosting you on one of our signature Lessons or Tours during your next holiday in the Algarve.
