For the Sports Enthusiasts
Stand Up Paddle boarding (SUP)
If you have never surfed, or it’s been a while since you have, then Stand Up Paddle Boarding (SUP’ing) could be for you! Forget battling with the white water, with SUP’ing, powering through the waves is a breeze, and with a quick change of foot position you’re surfing like a pro. In your first lesson you will be piloting the board along the coastline and riding rolling waves, or if you prefer a less active approach, you can paddle away from the waves, focusing on core strength, quietening your mind and drinking in the meditative peacefulness that paddling can bring.
Rash guard, sunscreen, towel, zinc, liquid refreshments
Return transport to and from Sanur (roughly 40 minute journey) use of SUP board and lesson
Depart Escape Haven at 9am, return back around 1pm
If you haven’t quite had enough of the waves, add in another surf with our wonderful in-house surf team. Tide and weather dependent, it could be an early morning or a sunset surf session and perhaps you’ll have the chance to experience a beach or break that you have not yet seen.
