SUP, as it's called for short, looks exactly as it sounds: you stand on a large surfboard and propel yourself forward with a paddle. But, unlike traditional surfing, you don't have to wait for the waves. In fact, SUP, which is wildly popular, can be done on lakes, rivers, pools or any sufficiently large body of water.
Not only it is easy to learn, most people can get straight up standing within minutes. It is also a great workout on your core muscles. Best sessions are early morning. We often see dolphins, stingrays, even dugongs here at Sandgate. Rental, group or private lessons are available 7 days a week. We have 16 sup boards, and 12 kayaks, so we can groups of 28 at the same time. Great team building or fun group event!
