SUP or Stand up Paddling

From its Polynesia surf roots, the sport has quickly become the fastest growing water sport. You must hear about it, if not, Google “SUP” and you discover a whole world of special SUP-boards and attributes.

Our Pura Vida Lodge has the perfect location to give it a try since there’s a beautiful river running behind our backyard.

Once you get the basics on flat water, down the river a bit, and you can start to play in the open ocean. Just great fun.

Our introduction to SUP provides you with the basics to make sure your first time is a successful one. We provide the information about the equipment, how to stand up properly the first time, and even a few skills to make sure you get the most out of your first time on the water.

The act of standing up on a board for the first time is exhilarating! From there, the sport opens up a whole new world of exploration, fitness and adrenaline. SUP is a great way to get fit, developing core strength and balance, and allows you to reconnect with nature.
