STAND UP PADDLE SURFING (SUP)

A surf board and a paddle is all you need for this ancient Polinesian navigation technique which allows you to discover the crystal clear waters of the secluded coves in the vicinity of Alghero. SUP is a mix between surfing and paddling and is easy to learn. In regular surfing, you catch a wave and attempt to hop on the board while on the wave. Not so with SUP. Because the goal is simply to stand on the board and propel yourself forward using your paddle, flat water is a fine playing field for "SUPers" and there's no pressure to catch a wave.

COST:
SUP rental per hour €15
