No matter whether you glide over the water in a relaxed manner and take a break on board from time to time, or you are on a dynamic journey and want to make a route: With stand-up paddling (SUP) everything is possible. This trend sport has become increasingly popular in recent years – and the conditions for SUPing in Lindau at Lake Constance are ideal.
SUP - great activity
Stand-Up Paddling (SUP) is a water sport suitable for all ages and fitness levels – because everyone can decide for themselves how active they want to be. Lake Constance is – especially in the morning and evening hours often as smooth as glass – and therefore an ideal SUP area. Whether you take a trip along the shore, circle the island, use the board for sunbathing and swimming far away from the hustle and bustle or simply swing towards the sunset is up to you.
And with all this pleasure you will also do something good for your body: by standing upright and paddling, almost all your muscles are challenged and strengthened. You determine the amount of effort and the pace of this whole-body workout yourself.
Learn Stand-Up Paddling
The surf school Lindau offers a basic course for stand-up paddling: In the theoretical part you will learn the correct paddling technique as well as the most important safety rules; afterwards you can apply your new knowledge directly on the water (total duration 90 minutes).
You also have the opportunity to get to know the trend sport SUP in the Lindenhofbad. After a short briefing on land, the guides will first show you the correct paddling technique so that you feel safe on the board. Then you can put what you have learned into practice on a SUP tour along the Bavarian Riviera (total duration 120 minutes).
Prerequisite for both courses is that you can swim.
