BIG SUP WEEK

Two unbeatable coastlines, a stunning range of lakes, rivers, lagoons and fantastic weather make Portugal’s Algarve Europe's top paddle boarding destination. Join us to explore, learn new techniques and meet other SUP’ers from all over the world!

 

ABOUT THE WEEK

A bespoke week built around your ability and interests, perfect for wave and flat-water lovers. Try a variety of boards including inflatables, hardboards, race, touring and wave riding models whilst exploring different paddleboarding disciplines. Options include river tours, exploring the caves of the south coast, SUP yoga, night tours, downwinders, wave riding and more. Take a look below at some of the destinations and activities included on the week...

FLAT WATER DESTINATIONS

The Algarve is blessed with a multitude of options for flat water lovers. Wide sweeping rivers, large peaceful lagoons and lakes inland, plus an abundance of never ending sea caves and grottos along it's interesting coastline. There's plenty to explore!

RIVER 

The fresh springs of Monchique mountain just 30km away combine to form the idyllic Aljezur river. We’ll take a picturesque journey through luscious countryside of the Costa Vicentina National Park to Praia de Amoreira. Here the river meets the Atlantic Ocean surrounded by white sand beaches and stunning rugged cliffs.

LAGOON

The lagoon and estuary of Alvor is home to an intricate, protected ecosystem of plant and animal species both on land and in the water. We'll explore the marshland and open water of the lagoon, a great opportunity to see migratory birds, plant and animal life alongside the local community's shellfish gatherers and fishermen.

GROTTOS

Launch from Praia Dona Ana to discover the caves and grottos of the southern Algarve only accessible via paddleboard or kayak. Your experienced guide will take you to hidden beaches and the best caves, passing dramatic limestone cliffs and weaving between impressive rock formations along the way!

“ONE OF MY BEST EVER HOLIDAYS”

“David is full of energy and enthusiasm, his expertise as an instructor is obvious and he really goes the extra mile to make sure you have a great experience and improve your skills! Awesome fun and the views are spectacular!”

SUP SURF 

The Algarve’s two coastlines provide some of the most consistent waves in Europe. With magnificent cliffed beaches to the west, and softer, equally beautiful beaches to the south, there’s plenty of choice for all levels. We'll find the best waves for you and provide quality instruction making sure you return home with new skills! 

 

DOWNWINDER

Feel the power of the wind on your back with a downwinder SUP session. With two coastlines to explore, there’s plenty of routes to try. Launching from one beach, we’ll head downwind, following the coastline to a designated pick-up spot. It’s a thrilling experience and a fantastic opportunity for beginners to try downwind SUP in a safe environment with qualified and experienced instructors.

I WANT TO MEET OTHER PEOPLE WHO LIKE TO SUP

MEET DAVID

David is Tiny Whale’s stand up paddle boarding coach. As an ASI qualified instructor with over 10 years experience, David gives detailed tuition making sure you feel safe whilst pushing your boundaries.

We’ll teach you all the paddle boarding skills you need. From your first balance, to manoeuvring, turning and wave riding.

As an Olympic trained athlete David knows plenty about getting results. Bringing proven teaching methods and the most up to date techniques to his sessions, his instruction gives beginners the skills to SUP independently and provides the more advanced with techniques to lift them to new skill levels.

I have travelled all over the world and can safely say that the Algarve with its varied coastline and waterways is one of the best places for paddle boarding. 

Having lived and instructed in the area with Tiny Whale for the past two years David has the precise local knowledge needed to make the most of daily conditions across a variety of locations for each paddleboarding discipline.
