Stand Up Paddleboard, or SUP, is a great activity year round. Its numerous benefits include physical & mental wellbeing as well as a unique way to observe marine life on your next vacation. 

Health

SUP can provide the participant with a very good overall workout. It utilises balance and strength in order to remain upright & propel yourself in the water. Almost every muscle in the body is used in SUP at one point or another, main ones being the leg, core back and abdominal muscles which will be hard work maintaining balance as well as back, arm and shoulder muscles which you use to paddle yourself along. An important thing to note is that although its a good workout, SUP is a low impact excersise, making it very unlikely to do any harm to your ligaments or joints. SUP is a form of simultaneous aerobic and strength training, meanining you're burining up a lot of calories without damaging your joints! SUP is also an excellent form of stress relief as its very relaxing, once you get out onto the water and into the paddling rythem, you can feel the stress just melt away! Another popular up and coming activity is Paddleboard Yoga. Great way to try Yoga and for current practitioners, its an excellent challenge to maintain balance. 

Marine Life 

Observe marine life in a way you've never experienced before. Glide along emerald green waters and keep a close eye on the vast array of life that congregates around the board. At night, this gets better as the day time critters scatter back home and the nocturnal life comes out to play! A perfect way to experience this is with one of our night time adventures. With our lit boards, you're not only the centre of attraction above the water, but also below! Watch as fish and marine life of all shapes and sizes swim up to the board to investigate, attracted by the bright light, and cruise along with you. Anything from squid to stingray, jellyfish to small sharks, you're sure to find something that interests you and leaves a lasting memory. 

Sightseeing

Tired of the same boring land tours? Want to experience Koh Samui in a unique way? Being a small island, almost all land-based tour companies offer the same itinerary featuring the same landmarks which are bound to be packed with other groups of tourists at any time of the year. Why not avoid the masses and take in Koh Samui's breathtaking sites and coastline whilst peacefully gliding along tranquil waters, far away from the hustle and bustle. See a different side of Koh Samui, something you can really write home about! 

Nightlife

Nightlife on Koh Samui consists mainly of bars/clubs & shows. Bar the restaurants and certain shows, the majority of night time entertainment is not family friendly & one of the main gripes of visitors is that there just isnt enough unique/family friendly activities at night. Another one is that all of this gets old, pretty quickly especially for those who are here for over a week, and people are always looking for something new and different to try out at night. This is one of the main reasons we are focusing our operation to run during the night time. For the price of an average night out on the town, you can join us for a unique night time experience, gliding along our selected bays on our illuminated boards taking in the sights and marine life. And if you still aren't fed up with the bars, join us on one of our Paddle Pub Crawls for a unique night out!
