Stand Up Paddle

International Organization SUP

Although Paddle Surfing is generally believed to be a relatively modern sport, it is actually an ancient practice that originated in Polynesian tribes some centuries ago. Ancient Polynesians used boards and oars made of wood as a means of transportation between more than 7.000 islands scattered around the Pacific Ocean, as well as for fishing or even going to war.

ZooPark Famara is an Official School of IOSUP (International Organization Stand Up Paddle) certified by the Spanish Surfing Federation (Federación Española de Surfing). In our lessons, we only use the most innovative and successful teaching methods acknowledged in the world of Stand Up Paddle. These methods are based on practical approach and allow us to evaluate the progress of the students all the while they interact with the marine environment.

SUP is a sport for everyone, it is fun and easy to learn. A sport to enjoy with friends or family since it does not require any special physical abilities because you are simply standing on the board from the very start.
