Stand up paddling is quite a new trend water sport. As the name implies, the stand up paddling, or SUPing, is performed standing on a large surfboard. To be able to move around and also catch waves at some point, you have one paddle in your hands. This sport is versatile and can be done in shallow water or in the wave. For beginners the shallow water is the first option to get a feel for the board and water. The SUP is very suitable for training balance and coordination. The more advanced and experienced SUPers can give it a try in the wonderful waves of Fuerteventura.
You can just borrow a board and get started on your own, or take a course in one of the schools in northern Fuerteventura.
