What's SUP? Stand up Paddle boarding in the Turks and Caicos is such a fun and rewarding activity. And it is a very easy sport to understand and try. You stand up on a board and you paddle! It's always great to try new sports on your vacation and the flat, calm waters of the Turks and Caicos are the best place to learn to stand up paddle board. This 'fun for all ages' sport does not take too long to grasp and is a great group or family activity. We have stand up paddle boards for rent and offer great SUP tours.
The stand up paddle boards are long and light and the long canoe paddles allow for turns and manoeuvres whilst keeping you upright and balanced. Yes, you will wobble a lot to start with and you will fall in but you will get the hang of it. The learning curve is steep with this sport. You will start on your knees to gain confidence and balance and then progress to standing up. Keeping your eye on the horizon and the amazing view of our islands will help you!
