Stand up paddle in the Basque Country : lessons and outings

Stand-up paddle boarding, or SUP, consists of standing on a large board and moving with a paddle. It is performed on a relatively smooth body of water and is within everyone's reach. It is a relaxing activity, ideal for admiring the landscapes in a new way, from the open water or on a river.

Surf schools in the Biarritz Pays basque offer different options to enjoy the thrill of stand-up paddle boarding.
