Stand Up Padlle Lessons

Learn SUP in a mesmerizing setting

Stand Up Paddle lessons are designed for ages 10 and above and are divided into two parts, for a total of two hours in length.

The first part of a lesson takes place on the sand of Praia do Lacém beach (37°08’52.0″N 7°34’14.0″W) and includes warm-up exercises, theoretical explanations, and a demonstration of board control.

Do not confuse Praia do Lacém with Praia do Lacém-Mar, the latter being one of the Ocean beaches that are accessible during the route through the channels of Ria Formosa, approximately 5km between Cabanas and Cacela Velha, within the Natural Park. This fabulous route shared with the local birdlife constitutes the second part of the SUP HUT Stand Up Paddle lessons. Cool, huh?!

What will you learn

Getting to know the equipment; using it properly; safety rules; techniques to keep the balance on the board; posture; paddling technique; maneuvering and turning the board.


Book your lessons at least 24 hours in advance to ensure the best weather and tide conditions.

We recommend wearing a T-shirt, hat or sun cap, and bringing water and sunscreen.

Keep a communication channel open for any last-minute changes.

Ria Formosa

An amazing place to learn SUP

Ideal for beginners or for enjoying unique landscapes and reaching fantastic beaches that are usually only accessible by boat.

The route taken during the Stand Up Paddle lessons is entirely within the classified area of Ria Formosa Natural Park. It is a tranquil waterway perfect for those seeking to relax body and mind while paddling through an area off-limits to motorized craft and of great beauty and with two coastlines always in sight, ensuring extra safety. The starting point for this unforgettable SUP experience is Praia do Lacém (37°08’52.0″N 7°34’14.0″W), but if the wind or tides require it, we have alternatives.
