Kitesurf Adventures is proud to offer SUP for everyone who has that spirit of adventure
Paddle Surf (SUP) was born long ago in Polynesia originally as a method of transport between islands. In modern times, it has been adapted into one of the fastest growing aquatic sports. It can be practiced in calm warm waters or in waves as a fantastic sport activity. Kitesurf Adventures is proud to offer SUP for everyone who has that spirit of adventure, desire for exercise or just to have great fun! For those of us who don’t like treadmills or stuffy health-clubs, SUP is a complete and exciting sport for anyone. It will be love at first sight and you will be able to head-out and row local waters with friends or for fun!
According to specialists and practitioners, SUP or Paddleboard is one of the board/water-sports which offers the most complete work-out and great all-around exercise. SUP utilizes the principles of Yoga and Pilates. It works your body’s power, balance, abdominal region, your back, arms as well as the mind – a complete sport and workout.
SUP is also one of the best ways to access and enjoy our fascinating natural and cultural coastal environment which locally constitutes as The Cascais bay, “Cabo da Roca”, “Boca do Inferno”, hidden coastal caverns, other secret spots as well as local jewels and ecosystems. Alternatively, it is possible to explore the wave action in the local hot-spots north of the Tagus River such as Carcavelos Beach, Parede, São Pedro Beach, São João do Estoril Beach, Guincho and many more!
