It’s clear that stand up paddle boarding (‘SUPing’) is really taking off in the watersports world. It’s probably due to the ease with which you can get afloat and the fact it’s something all ages can enjoy – all you need is a board, a paddle and some water!
Absolutely everybody can have a go – whatever fitness level, age or watersports experience you may have – you’ll love SUPing. We even have junior paddles so that little ones can have a go. After a few minutes getting your balance and learning a few strokes, most people are up on their feet, happily paddling around on their first go.
This summer our SUPs have been the sport of choice – we’ve been so busy we’ve had to buy more! The freedom a paddle board allows you is great, meaning the water is yours to explore at whatever pace you choose. You can have a lie down and sunbathe if you’re feeling lazy, or you can push your workouts further by doing core strength training or yoga on top of your kit. The possibilities are endless. Our SUP fitness sessions are a great way to start your day.
It’s so exciting for us to be able to push this up and coming sport in the ideal SUP location. The Lefkas area has so many little islands and bays to explore, that there’s always an adventure at your fingertips. One of our main SUP events this summer was a charity SUP, where the staff SUP’d the equivalent distance of Nidri to Corfu!
Bookings for off-site hire for yachts and villas has been really popular this summer too. You can take a SUP away for a week and enjoy paddling any day of your holiday. Families staying in villas or hotels around the area book a SUP or two to add that something extra to their holiday and give the children something active and engaging to do each day. Our Red Paddle Co inflatable SUPs are ideal for storing on the deck of your yacht or popping in the car and taking round the island. They inflate with a standard pump in 5 mins, and that’s it – you’re ready to go!
We’re really excited to have some bookings for 2017 already and this year we have also started selling Red Paddle Co SUPs. For more information on sales contact firstname.lastname@example.org. He is our resident SUP man and happily talks for hours about the wonderful world of SUPing!
In summary, it’s definitely been a summer of SUPing – we love SUPs – and we’re sure you will too!
