TWO GREAT LOCATIONS - SEASON OPENS MARCH 2024

ABOUT PADDLEBOARDING

Paddleboarding  is an off-shoot of surfing. 

​Stand up paddleboarding (also called SUP) is a surface watersport where paddle boarders stand on their boards and use a paddle to propel themselves.

The push-pull method is the most effective way of paddling when stand up paddle boarding. It requires inserting the paddle gently into the water ahead of the feet, and then pulling it backwards and lifting it back out of the water.

Paddleboarding uses special boards, designed specifically for gliding on top of the water.
