Stand-up Paddleboarding (Sup) And Kayaking

Enjoy the sea and our beautiful coastal landscapes

Faial has great conditions for stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) and kayaking activities: crystal clear waters, protected bays, and breathtaking views.

They can be practiced safely during the summer at Almoxarife beach, where there may be a bigger swell, and all year round at Porto Pim beach, where there is little or none, even during the winter (save for very stormy weather).

SUP and kayaking are activities that can be enjoyed by the whole family.

What about the equipment?
– You can rent the equipment in Faial at Surface
– Or you can bring your own equipment (see conditions

Curiosity: Stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) is an old form of surfing, which has recently re-emerged as a separate sport. SUP became popular in the ‘60s in Hawaii as surfing lessons took off. To keep up with their students, surfing instructors stood on their boards and moved with the help of a paddle.
