Having exploded in popularity in the last few years, stand-up paddle boarding (SUP) is becoming a great watersport to try out when you get the chance. With the unique location of Lemnos Beach Resort and the water just calling out for you to come on down every morning, a Mark Warner holiday is the perfect time to try out this unique activity.
If you’ve never done it before, and you’re staying in Lemnos with us, we’d can’t recommend it enough as something different to try out, especially when it is an activity you can master in no time at all.
What makes paddle boarding so fantastic is that it is so incredibly easy to learn and get the hang of. Unlike most other watersports, once you’re fine with getting on the board and knowing how to manoeuvre without falling off, you’re pretty much fine to go out there.
It is common for a person to get to grips with the technique and be ready to get in the water in roughly an hour.
For any Mark Warner holiday-goer aged 14 or over, use of a paddle board at Lemnos Beach Resort is free, and there’s no limit to how long you have to spend out in the water.
Lemnos is known for having tranquil waters, so it won’t be much of a surprise if you spend a good bit of time out on your board (just remember to have adequate sun protection on before you get out there).
Unlike kayaking, where you’d be exercising your arms if you really went for it while rowing, paddle boarding is a fantastic workout for your core as it involves a lot of balancing and stabilisation. If you still want to feel like you’re doing a good bit of exercise on your holiday, it’s a great idea.
Also, if you want to turn it into a good exercise, try it out while alternating between kneeling and standing.
With the ease of the activity, it may be possible for the whole family to get involved. We would recommend getting in touch with one of the instructors if you’d like to get the kids involved and on the board with you.
