If you’ve never tried stand up paddle boarding (SUP), I highly recommend it. After living in Barbados for a few years, last week Ree and I finally made it out with two of our girlfriends to give SUP a go. It’s an absolute must-try summer activity. We had so much fun and are incredibly grateful to Paddle Barbados for the amazing day! No matter what beach you visit this summer, you must get out there and SUP.
If you’re planning to use a company to arrange SUP, you’ll get a brief introduction and instruction before you head out on the water. However, if you’re lucky enough to have your own board and just want to give it a try, here’s a great guide for beginners.
Although the weather started off a bit iffy (we had to wait twenty minutes for the down pour to pass over), it turned out to be a beautiful day. It was a little overcast at times, but that was perfect because it meant cooler temperatures and no sun burn!
Here we are!
And don’t let it fool you, SUP can be quite the workout! Here we are racing=)
After that race and to celebrate one of our girlfriend’s birthdays, we all shared a bottle of Champagne! A fabulous way to end the day!
So grab your friends and make a day of it. You won’t be disappointed!
Have you tried stand up paddle boarding before? What have you tried for the first time this summer?
