Yes, regular SUP Yoga classes have arrived in the beautiful riverside town of Alvor (close to Lagos, Praia da Rocha and Portimao). Fill in the form below and enquire about times (we will be adding an online schedule in the very near future). Being close to nature supplements the naturalness of the sport.

SUP Yoga, otherwise known as paddleboard yoga is fairly new and a wonderful way to immerse yourself in the peace and quiet of the great outdoors. Paddleboarding in itself is a calming activity if you want it to be (hardcore athletic if you so choose as well!).

Keep your eyes on this post or get in touch for more details.

Coastal SUP Tour with Algarve SUP

Paddle board on this coastal SUP tour

I can recall the very moment when I climbed the cliff path from Armação de Pera and gazed over at the cliffs and coves laid out before me. I couldn’t believe how perfect this situation was for a coastal SUP tour. We blazed that trail throughout the summer of 2015 and it was brilliant every single morning. Now we’re doing it again this year!

This was THAT moment.

Alvor SUP stand up paddle tours in the Ria Alvor

Stand up paddle in the Alvor lagoon

The Alvor SUP tour takes place in the Alvor Lagoon, known as the Ria Alvor in Portuguese. Itis a stone’s throw away from Lagos and it’s perfect for paddling. It’s a calm, safe enclosed lagoon and it is a great place to go stand up paddling whether you’re an experienced pro or venturing out into the wonderful world of SUP for your first time.

Why only mornings?

We mainly paddle in the mornings due to the prevailing “nortada” wind which picks up in the afternoon and turns Alvor into a kite surfers paradise. Occasionally we will schedule a downwinding event, which will give you a taste of what it feels like to paddle with the wind. Normally this is done out in the deep ocean when wind and swell travel in the same direction. It’s a blast, but super tiring.

Other fun paddles can be organized, such as SUP Yoga, Paddlefit and especially a sundowner or full moon paddle. If you have a group of four or more let me know and we can organize a great trip for you.

Thanks for visiting!
