Stand Up Paddleboard Tour in Rio de Janeiro
STAND UP PADDLING TOUR IN RIO Stand up paddle surfing (SUP), is a fairly new sport with a Hawaiian heritage. It is an old form of surfing, and has reemerged as a way for surfers to paddle longer distances. The sport is gaining in popularity even in calm coastal waters and lakes. The sport benefits athletes with a strong “core” workout. SUP is popular at warm coastal climates. Another reason for its popularity is that, unlike surfing, paddle boarding is very easy to learn. Within one hour you will find yourself paddling around, confident and very comfortable in the water. Stand up paddle boarding is also popular among girls, specially because an average adult woman’s lower center of gravity can give them a balance advantage. STAND UP PADDLING TOUR IN RIO – PROGRAM Tourist practicing in the lagoon Stand Up Paddling Tour in Rio, is practiced on the Canal de Marapendi, a clear water lagoon in Barra da Tijuca neighborhood. Our lessons take about one hour, including a short briefing. The lagoon has shallow waters, so people who do not feel very comfortable swimming, have nothing to fear. This activity is recommended to people at all ages, who have no history of knees or back problems. This activity requires that you maintain your body on a straight and rigid position, with the knees bent a little bit. People who already have experience may be able to book a surf lesson with a SUP board. The beach where the lesson will be given, is picked by the instructor, according to the sea conditions. When you travel to Rio, SUPing is a must do thing! TOUR DURATION: 1 hour lesson. INCLUDED: Equipment rentals and guiding services. Transportation may be hired separately.
