Activity Board: stand up paddle boarding

The ultimate adventure exercise on the ocean.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?

The freedom to explore the open ocean, calmly drifting along the waves and seeing Ibiza's gorgeous coastline. Stand Up Paddle boarding (SUP) is a surf-like experience, though you are standing up all the time you do it and going at a much less frenetic pace. It's great for an exciting medium rush of adrenaline and offers a great total core body workout to boot.


WHY SHOULD I DO IT?

Those that like to satisfy their wanderlust will love SUP. On Ibiza, guided ocean tours take you via special spots from cove shoreline gems to pretty, yet usually inaccessible-by-land beaches. It's easier to master than surfing, suitable for people of any age and if you have any wobbles, then know you can count on excursions with instructors to give you a helping hand.


HOW CAN I GET INTO IT?

There are plenty of ways to get into SUP on Ibiza. For those fresh to the activity, try a dedicated SUP company, such as SUP Paradise Ibiza. A specialist company like this one knows the terrain and can quickly help you correct any mistakes. If you know what you're doing then look out for boat trips which offer SUP boards as an added extra. There are daytime SUP trips and sunset ones and you can even do some stretching on the board with SUP Yoga Ibiza. Whichever you choose, it's a fun trip for all.


WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO DO IT?

Organised SUP trips are available all year round and as long as the sea is calm, so whilst surfing needs waves, SUP needs the opposite. The island's busiest (and hottest) months are July and August, so many consider this the prime time to go and booking in advance is recommended. Be sure to stock up on suncream for these peak summer months, too.

Pack your swimsuit and sunglasses and get in on one of the coolest ways to see this gorgeous White Isle.
