LEVEL - BEGINNER
One of the best core workouts around, Stand Up Paddle Boarding is quickly becoming the next big thing. It’s also a very easy sport. The best place to learn how to Paddle Board in this area is on flat water.
We offer you two options of flat water places. You have the option to take your lesson in the rio Baru or to the Mangroves. What we do is give you a lesson on technique, teach you about the sport, get you comfortable on the board and then give you a whole tour (your choice of the rio Baru or Mangroves). As you enjoy the surrounding beauty, you will become comfortable on the Paddle Board, leaving you ready to try other paddle destinations.
WHAT TO BRING: hat, bathing suit, sunscreen, water shoes, water bottle, croakies for Rx Glasses, bug spray, towel for after, waterproof camera
WHY NOT TRY our Week Long STAND UP PADDLEBOARD (SUP) Camp:
Come to paradise and Paddle with us, every day for a week! There are so many beautiful places to paddle and explore around the Coastal Ballena/Dominical/Southern Pacific area. Each day we would venture out to at least one location. Every day will include some sort of paddle to an exotic location on a river, in a bay or on the ocean. We will teach you the basics of Paddle Boarding and water safety and once you feel confident enough, we will show you advanced Paddle techniques. You will definitely still have your free time to relax in a hammock under the palm trees, or hike up the jungle mountains. Let us take care of all the small details and you can focus on your paddling, exploration, relaxation, and vacation away from the stresses of normal life! You can be out on the water, enjoying the beauty of Costa Rica, every day of your trip!
