From the Surfers Paradise Hawaii this new craze spills to us: SUP or Stand Up Paddle. Since three years the enthusiasm, popularity and number of athletes around the trendy water sport keeps growing and grwoing. Originally the water sport SUP comes from Polynesia and exercises all muscle groups, but that’s not all – besides strength, endurance and coordination are trained as well. At SUP the athlete stands on an over sized surfboard and moves forward with a paddle. Depending on the size of the board you get used to the shaky ground quiet quickly and soon you will experience an awesome nature- sport experience. Paddle in Mallorca is just fun and besides fun you also do something good for your body and your soul. Ambitious athletes love the challenge in the long haul or the adrenaline rush in the waves. However, SUP is not only perfect fun for action lovers, but also for wellnessfans and TaiChi- and Yogagurus. To keep it short – in the gorgeous bays of Mallorca everybody will find the right form of “supping”. What is more, the Stand Up Paddling is perfect for families with kids to get together and playfully explore the Mallorcan water world while having a lot of fun swimming. Hardly a sport has so many facets and provides such a high fun factor for the whole family.
Furthermore you can select out of a wide variety of offers, for instance SUP at sunset, at night or as daytrip with photos, lunch and drinks – to make your paddle experience to a very special and unique one. Try it now: directly in Puerto Andratx you will find a SUP-Surf-School – they will introduce you quickly with expert advice into this sport, offering different courses and giving you a coordinated board and paddle. Prices go up from 12€ for renting per hour and 35€ for a lesson with professional trainer.
