Fun standing up in Valencia
- Thursday, 07 August 2014
Discover why stand up paddle is one of the world's most fashionable sports right now when you try SUP in Valencia.
This activity is suitable for everybody and the Royal Marina provides the perfect location to try it out with the help of your professional instructor.
Beginners can practice quietly in the calm water of the marina and then head out to the beach area to catch some waves if they want something more adventurous. Those that have tried it before can go straight out to the waves if they wish.
You'll start on solid ground with a short lesson on how to use the paddles, get up, and keep your balance. Then, before you know it, you'll be gliding along on your board!
Your professional guide will be with you at all times and can show you round the most interesting parts of the marina. For those looking for more surf, they'll also accompany you out of the marina to catch waves along the nearby beaches.
You can either book a 1 hour introduction or a longer 2 hour introduction and free time session, which includes the class and plenty of time to practice your new skills in the waves.
A great option for friends, family, stag and hen parties, or any other groups.
