Stand Up Paddle Boarding in the Riviera Maya

Stand Up Paddle Boarding in the Riviera Maya Stand up paddle boarding can be practiced for its very relaxing, gentle cruising or to have a more exciting experience that is a great workout, just like most of the other surfing sports, such as windsurfing and kitesurfing.

Why Standing Up?

Standing up means you see a lot more. Paddling and looking give you access to the underwater fishes, coral, bottom as well as unique view all around. A half hour paddle boarding excursion uses lots of muscles you may have forgotten, including across your shoulders, your entire back and core, as well as your legs. Paddle boarding also gives a low impact all-over workout. Glide around on flat water conditions, leave the kayak on the beach and enjoy a great stand paddle surf ride or SUP.

Why SUP Surf?

The old school long boards allow you to catch any wave from 6 inches high to 15-foot-high on the same board. Add a paddle and you will get into the waves a lot earlier than a usual surfboard. If you’ve never surfed before, you'll find the easiest way on a SUP Board.

Once you start standing up, all you need is a gentle paddle to jump into the wave and you're up and riding. Once you're surfing, the paddle can be used to lean against the waves like a stabilizer for added control. SUP surfing is easy and a lot more accessible.
