SUP means Stand Up Paddling. It is a fast growing and easy to learn water sport. When you sup you stand up straight on a broad surfboard and peddle with one long peddle. Explore the waters near the campsite while you get in shape and sup!
During the 50s and 60s surfing was very popular. Hawaiian surf instructors used broad surf boards, for practice reasons, to photograph the surfing tourists from the water. This led to Stand Up Paddle surfing, a sport for everyone, young or old, and for any kind of water: a lake, a sea, streams or canals in a city.
Friesland offers excellent areas for Stand Up Paddling. The ‘SUP Elfstedentocht’(eleven cities tour) is a perfect example. This 5-day tour through Friesland is the summer equivalent of the ice-skating competition Suppers from all over the world gather for this unique and extreme SUP-event of 220km over a 5-day period.
Of course you can always start smaller, just hop-on your board at our own campsite lake!
The rental price for a S.U.P. board on our campsite is: 16,50€ per hour
