Our Stand Up Paddle Board lessons are based on the standards of the ASI (Academy of Surfing Instructors). We are one of the first accredited schools to teach SUP in Lagos and the first ASI accredited SUP school in the Algarve. We are permanently located at the best spot in Lagos to try SUP, Praia da Batata.
Our boards and paddles have all been supplied by the world’s leading brand, STARBOARD. You will be taught how to handle the gear in a safe, fun environment, on flat water, at a safe distance from the shore. Most importantly you will be taught to paddle Hawaiian style. You’ll also learn correct stance, manoeuvring and various methods of turning. To spice up the adventure, part of the lesson will include a small tour of Lagos famous grottoes, rugged cliffs and hidden beaches, only accessible by the sea.
We run a number of SUP tours. Our west coast river tour takes you through the heart of the natural park. We follow the Aljezur river as it winds its way down from town through a beautiful valley, dense with lush vegetation, wild birds, fish and even the occasional otter, finally arriving onto the beautiful beach of Amoreira.
The trip can take around 4 hours including driving time and it definitely helps if you have some paddling experience.
We also have the secret cave and snorkelling paddle trip which starts and finishes at a beautiful little cove on the south coast. During the trip you also have the opportunity to do a bit of deep water soloing (rock climbing above the ocean), it’s not for the faint-hearted.
