SUP COURSE AND CAMP

On our website, you can book a SUP course and also an overnight stay at our popular Algarve Watersport Surf Camp in the Vila Calicas, Estrada da Albardeira which is located close to the harbor town Lagos and the Meia Praia beach. Here you will get to know international water sports guests and listen to their exciting and funny stories about our other water sports courses, like surfing, kiting or windsurfing. Various balance boards provide you with a great opportunity for exercising your balance and coordination. The camp holds different sleeping accommodation, such as comfy double rooms, multi-bed rooms or several bungalows.

Paddling while standing on a board is an ancient way of surfing. Only Polynesian tribe-kings used to surf this way for centuries. Water-men, like Dave Kalama and Laird Hamilton, made this kind of surfing popular again and showed the huge potential of Stand Up Paddling (SUP) with or without a wave.

SUP WAVETRIPS

The great advantages of SUP in waves are:

  • You can paddle much faster than conventional surfers allowing you to catch waves earlier and easier.
  • You can have fun in waves which are too fat or not powerful enough for regular surfing.
  • Since you are standing the whole time (of cause unless you fall) you are able to see and prepare for approaching waves.
  • Due to the fast and effort-saving paddling you will be able to reach spots further out or surf different spots during the same session.

All these advantages allow you to surf at spots with fewer people while catching more waves.

SUP YOGA

SUP Yoga is a unique activity which combines a variety of Asanas (adjusted to the level of the group) on a Paddle Board in order to enhance your yoga experience and improve your balance. Our SUP Yoga classes take place in the Salinas lake just outside Lagos. The lake provides us with calm water. In these conditions even harder looking Asanas can be performed on the floating ground.

After the warm-up, the yoga instructor will pick a calm spot and begin the class with focused breathing, Sun Salutations, and some beginner Paddle Board Yoga poses. SUP Yoga classes generally run for an hour and will also incorporate simple fitness exercises, as well as beginner to advanced yoga poses. It can be a delightful way to experience nature and invigorate your Yoga practice.
