SUP Phuket, what is it? have you ever heard of Stand Up Paddle Boarding? Looking at the photos, does it seem difficult? The truth is, SUP is the fastest growing water sport in the world. Suitable for every age and fitness level, it takes place on the water’s surface, offering scenic views of the environment. Phuket features some of the most delightful sights in the world: imagine being able to revel in them away from all the noise and crowds, feeling like one with the sun and the ocean…
Best Season for SUP in Phuket
Due to the nature of Phuket’s waters, SUP is mainly possible during the high season, between November and April. Exploring the area on a stand up paddleboard is a valuable experience for every beachgoer. It takes a bit of practice for the newcomers, however the boards are steady and everyone can learn to balance and paddle after a quick training.
