Discover the SUP Experience

Create an everlasting memory of a perfect day spent exploring, cruising, swimming, snorkelling and sunbathing in the turquoise waters of the infamous Ionian Islands

Paddleboarding has become an increasingly popular water sport in recent years, for people of all ages. Yet despite its modern-day acclaim, stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) has far-reaching roots.

Documented as far back as the 8th century AD you will find an ancient board-boat hybrid called the Hasake, traditionally used by Israelis and Arabs to fish. Later, this board-boat was also proposed as rescue equipment. Today, this hollow vessel is still a popular surfboard on the beaches of Tel Aviv.

Stand-up paddleboarding most likely made its modern debut in Waikiki, Hawaii, back in the 1940s, where local surfer John Ah Choy used a canoe paddle to help him ride the waves and reduce added pressure on his knees. His sons and their friend began teaching this technique to tourists, and soon enough, paddleboarding caught on.
