Stand up Paddleboarding (SUPing) is fast becoming one of the most popular water sports in the world, and once you’ve tried it, it’s easy to see why. The real game changer for us however is where we choose to paddleboard. The hardcore lovers will tell you it doesn’t matter where you do it, it’s always a thrill, and in the most part this is totally true. But when your back garden is the Ionian Sea, you become a little biased with your opinions and become the paddleboarding equivalents of the snowboarders powder snobs. Anyone who has ever visited Greece before, specifically the beautiful island of Lefkada we call home, will already know the undeniable pull the stunning surroundings here have. If you haven’t been before… come visit …soon! When trying something new, especially a new sport, no matter who you are there’s always the apprehension of how things are going to go. Although when the worst that can happen is that you take a little unscheduled dip into the amazingly blue and warm waters, the enthusiasm to try is amplified. In fact sometimes in the height of the summer heat, falling in is a refreshing relief. Paddleboarding is such an easy sport to get into and so accessible to anyone of any age and any ability. You can be the pro who gets it first time, the cautious who starts on their knees, the kids who get as many on one board as possible, or our favourite, the ones who paddle out a short while then use the paddleboard as a sophisticated lilo to lay back and catch some rays, there’s no way you cannot have fun in this perfect location. There’s many ways to explore Lefkada, but there’s something indescribable about paddleboarding here. Whether along the dramatic cliff faces of the west coast, or around the picturesque east coast and its numerous satellite islands including Meganisi and the famous Skorpois Island, it simply can’t be beaten. Having the water lapping over your toes, being able to look down and see the depths of the never ending blue, then looking up and taking in the views, whilst propelling yourself along with your paddle, is a feeling of pure awesomeness.
Here at Lefkada Paddleboard Cruises, we offer daily boat trips with paddleboardng included and paddleboard rental across the island of Lefkada. We are so passionate about getting people involved in the sport we love!
So on the cold nights of winter when dreaming of summer, think about coming to spend a day with us… try something new!
