Paddle boarding on holiday

Stand up paddle boarding (SUP) is a fast-growing global sport with a Hawaiian heritage. In the early 1960s, the beach boys of Waikiki would stand on their long boards and paddle out with outrigger paddles to take pictures of the tourists learning to surf.

One of the reasons for the rise in popularity of SUP boarding is that, unlike surfing, it is very easy to learn. Within one hour, you can become very comfortable in the water and on your board. And at many of our resorts, you can give it a go yourself. Find out more about our SUP boarding holidays for beginners.
