Stand Up Paddle Boarding

Come and find out why paddleboarding is the fastest growing water sport in the world right now. The sensation of gliding on water is hard to beat with this easy to pick up, fun sport for all ages.

Intro to SUP

For those who are new to paddleboarding, our team are on hand to take you through your first steps on a SUP. Our short 'Intro to SUP' sessions mean that you'll be up and paddling in about 30 minutes.

You will be introduced to the different boards available in resort, advised on how to safely fit a leash and buoyancy aid (if required), correctly adjust your paddle size and securely carry equipment to the water's edge.

Getting afloat, your instructor will walk you through some basic safety techniques before moving onto stable paddling positions, steering, paddle technique and strokes. With some encouraging supervision, you can get comfortable with the basics before heading further afield on your own and exploring the coast!

Instruction and Guiding

In all resorts we offer sunrise SUP sessions to start the day in style, cruising around the bay with an instructor as your guide. For those who haven’t tried SUP before, our beginner clinics will teach you paddle technique, tips and manoeuvres to help you make the most from your time on the water. We also use SUPs for our sociable paddle cruises which run at least twice a week and are a fantastic way to explore beyond our normal water sports area.

Try the fastest growing water sport!

Stand Up Paddleboards (SUPs) are fun for all abilities and are surprisingly easy to pick up and get started on. SUP’s are perfect to use in the warm, clear waters that front our Beach Clubs and provide a calming sensation of almost 'walking on water'. We often use SUP’s with our beach fitness sessions and sociable paddle cruises, and SUP’s also help us create some great Kids Clubs activities.

An addictive pastime

Many of our guests can’t explain why they get so addicted to this sport. For some it’s the pure feel good factor they get from a core workout. For others it’s the thrill of exploring from a new perspective, learning a cool new sport or paddling for fitness.

Our Free Kids Clubs

Our free Kids Clubs run 5 days a week and all day from 9.30 to 17.30 with a break for lunch. Drop your kids off at our Kids Club at your leisure, or leave them in all day long – it’s up to you. They will try lots of new activities, learn skills and experience new things whilst making loads of great friends along the way.

Kids Clubs

A great selection of boards

Our boards are offered free for our guests to use. We have a great selection of the latest paddle boards from leading brands Starboard, Red Paddle and Two Bare Feet for you to play on, get hooked and go home with a new skill mastered.

These boards are stable, forgiving and easy to use for all ages. Guests in Porto Heli can try out the Ride XL ‘Giant SUP’ for plenty of fun with friends and family. We have a big range of boards and more importantly, the right variety to get you on the water and enjoying this fantastic sport.

Try our Paddle Cruises

Sign up for our [very] popular weekly paddle cruises which run from all centres and are always lots of fun for all ages! Grab a paddleboard or kayak and join us as we head out in the morning calm as a flotilla of paddle-craft to visit a local beach for snorkelling or to stop for coffee and ice cream at the harbour. It’s a good laugh, always very sociable and we have a support boat on hand to guide the paddle-fleet along.

If you’re not a confident paddler, then don’t worry, our support boat instructor will provide tips along the way. Or why not join in with our paddle board ‘SUP Clinic’ to build your confidence beforehand.
