Did you know that Stand Up Paddle boarding (SUP), originated many years ago in Hawaii as an off-shoot of surfing? As bigger and more stable boards were constructed, SUP became very popular over the last few years and grew as a world phenomenon, gaining all kinds of followers. Today people paddle not only on the waves but also on seas, lakes and rivers. SUP can be a good core workout or just a meditation in movement. It can be also a beautiful trip from island to island, a long cruise along the coast, or just a simple exploration of bays and beaches.
Our center is situated in a bay which is protected from strong winds and waves, providing excellent conditions for all beginners to practice their first steps on SUP. Depending on the weather conditions, the duration of the SUP rental, and your personal preferences, our staff will give you detailed instructions on where to go and what the best places to visit are. We will also give you some instructions on how to use the equipment, or you can try our SUP school.
If you are familiar with SUP (intermediate or advanced level), you can also take a short trip along the coast to the wonderful cliffs located only 20 - 30 min away from our location (one way). Additionally, if you aren't afraid to cross Hvar Channel with a SUP (800 meters) and you are able to paddle for one hour or more, you can paddle to Zdrilca Channel on the Pakleni Islands and experience one of the most attractive places for paddling. We'll also provide you with 100% waterproof dry bags (3 or 30 liters in size) included in the price of rental, allowing you to carry your personal belongings (towels, clothes, shoes etc.) with you on your SUP adventure. With our dry bags it is also absolutely safe (if closed properly) to carry your mobile phones, cameras and other personal items that must stay completely dry during your trip.
If you reach the Pakleni Islands, there are several options (pebble beaches) where you can pull your SUP up onto the coast and explore the island, swim, snorkel, eat and drink something in the nearby restaurant, or just relax. Take advantage of our special prices for a full day rental to practice and explore Hvar coast at your own pace, for up to 8 hours.
