What is Stand Up Paddle boarding (SUP)?

Stand Up Paddle boarding is a great way to explore the surroundings, enjoy a warm summer day with friends or get a good workout on the water. The board resembles a large surfboard, but has enough volume to allow paddling standing up and keeping the board balanced. The paddle has a blade on the one end and a handle on the other, which is used on both sides of the board to move forward. SUP is suitable for all ability levels and ages. The wide and long beginner boards help you to keep balance and have a good time on the water! 

Why is Finland such a spectacular place for SUP?

We are really privileged here in Finland for our optimal stand up paddling environment. The coastline is very rugged made up of thousands of islands, which make the stand up paddling routes both beautiful, as well as protected from winds and waves. There are many recreational islands to which you can paddle to and even camp out in. When you move inland the pristine lake systems and connecting rivers provide endless opportunities for SUP adventures. For experienced paddles we offer take-away SUP-rentals for independent exploration, but also offer guided tours to our favorite destinations. Don't hesitate to ask us for advice on paddling routes or enquire about upcoming paddling tours in the Helsinki region!
