The best way to learn the skills needed to get the most out of your Paddleboarding experience is to join us on one of our Stand up Paddle courses.
There is a natural progression in acquiring SUP skills which is why we recommend one of our SUP courses, which are designed to help you become really proficient in the shortest possible time and maximise your enjoyment of this popular pastime.
Our coaches are qualified to Association of Surf Instructors (ASI) standards, have well researched lesson plans and extensive knowledge of local conditions.
The learning process is quite rapid on these courses and while rookies usually appreciate a nice stable beginner’s board on day one, as their skills improve and their confidence grows many like to try out different boards such as our specialist Touring, Wave, Race and Freestyle boards on different days.
Paddleboarding is an ideal way to explore the warm clear waters, shallow lagoons, water ways and islands in our vicinity. Why not join us on one of our popular Paddleboard tours and discover a different Algarve.
Our enthusiastic, knowledgeable guides understand the local ecosystems and will take you to our secret spots away from the stress and strain of modern life; be sure to bring a waterproof camera to capture those special moments.
To truly stimulate the senses you may like to join us SUP surfing. Some historians claim SUP was the original form of surfing and the first Paddleboarding practitioners were Polynesian, others say they were Peruvian. One thing is for sure, surfing is a more challenging aspect of SUP.
If you have never paddleboarded or surfed before, we recommend learning the necessary SUP skills on our paddle board lessons which will make your first time in waves far more satisfying and enjoyable.
We know the best local spots and start you on gentle knee to hip high waves. Before you know it you are getting some really nice runs and sporting a ridiculous grin.
We run a special SUP class called an introduction to SUP Freestyle. You can find out more on the SUP lessons page.
We run a special SUP class called an introduction to SUP Yoga. Take your Yoga to another level and test your SUP balance skills to the maximum.
SUP Yoga is a great way to bring you fully into the present moment whilst immersed in the beautiful water environs of Fuseta and beyond.
Paddling on the clear warm waters of the Ria Formosa beneath the wide open expanse of sky is the perfect way to unplug from all your daily tasks and work your whole body to the core, in an integrating SUP experience of shifting balance, breath, aliveness and laughter!
