Aloha Carnival: Stand-up Paddle Boarding! ・ SUP体験

2015.07.08 (Wed)


Stand-up paddle boarding is a popular water sport similar to traditional paddle boarding; however, rather than kneeling and using your hands to paddle, you stand-up on the board and use paddles to glide across the surface of the water. You get a good workout while relaxing and getting a unique and beautiful view of the ocean SUPfloor below you (as well as the horizon stretching off into the distance).

Come wearing your swimsuit- or even just clothes that you don’t mind getting wet. You will be given a life-jacket to wear and the staff will be there to help instruct you and help as

You don’t need to be able to swim or speak Japanese to participate, so come and enjoy stand-up paddle boarding with us!
