About Stand Up Paddle (SUP)
Stand Up Paddle (SUP) is a sport activity originated in Hawaii, resulting from surfing. It enables surfers to paddle farther into the ocean than usual or to paddle standing up as a sport by itself. Paddlers race on lakes, large rivers and canals, ride breaking waves, and slide over long distances along sea coasts, often using tail winds(blowing in the direction of the trip).
Stand up paddle is a fun and adrenaline-pumping activity for everybody- whether alone, with friends, or family, including children- after only a few minutes of learning! Stand up paddlers wear a range of wet suits and other clothing, depending on both water and air temperature as most of their time is spent standing on the board.
Stand Up Paddle in Mauritius: Mauritius is a real paradise for SUP, and SUP is equally one of the best way to discover Mauritius on the green side. What is more interesting is that Stand Up Paddle can be enjoyed as from 5 years old. Mauritius Attractions takes you to the most beautiful spot: the largest lagoon in South East, an incredible marine eco-system at Blue Bay Marine Park with the bright sandy beaches all around, let alone best waves for Stand Up Paddle all year long with nice temperatures!
