Enjoy unique views

Stand up Paddling in Croatia can be done anywhere along the coast. But SUP (Stand Up Paddling) as a sport has become a huge hit worldwide, it’s easy and super popular. A modern style of paddling on a board started on Waikiki beach, as “beach bay surfing“. Where teams of surfers started using paddles to catch the wave quickly. But also to have fun in the days when there were no waves. Today’s way of Stand up Paddling became popular when they made the first large and stable board, intended just for Stand up Paddling. This way it became accessible to the masses on all water surfaces, from sea to lakes and even rivers too.

Stand up paddling offers a fun, relaxing way to play on the water. It delivers a full-body workout so it has become a popular cross-training activity. Once you stand at your full height, you can enjoy unique views of everything around you. No previous paddling experience is needed. Even children from 6 years of age, accompanied by parents, can participate. We use inflatable SUP boards which are easy and safe to navigate.

Stand up Paddling is becoming more popular

Historically, river-based and coastal cultures have stood up within their canoes and paddled standing for thousands of years. Conceptually, therefore, the idea of standing and paddling using an extended canoe paddle is far from being a new concept. Stand up Paddling offers surfers the ability to catch more waves in a set, as well as better views of incoming sets. From a contemporary standpoint and as a sport, stand up paddle surfing really began taking off after 2005.
