There is a new hit craze that are hitting the warm turquoise lagoon and mangrove waters of Guadeloupe. it’s called Stand Up Paddle Boarding And it’s a new sport that is designed for everyone to enjoy. This old school way of riding the waves that originated in the pacific has hit the Caribbean islands, especially Guadeloupe. Surf is one of the highlights when coming to Guadeloupe on vacation. Everyone enjoys the beautiful weather and the warm trans-lucid waters that surround this beautiful island. Many people just lay back and enjoy the sun but the real benefits of these beautiful and secluded areas are for the adventurous ones. One thing that you notice in the background of every horizon is someone is always doing a water sport and now a days you can see paddle boarders everywhere.
Stand Up Paddle Boarding in Guadeloupe is one of the most fun and relaxing sports to do when your looking for some fun. This sport is usually done with small groups that go around the lagoons and mangroves just gliding on the flat waters. This activity is recommended for everyone of all ages from young and old. It is not to hard to do like in surfing which is a little bit more difficult where you need a little bit more balance. Stand up paddle in Guadeloupe is really great because most of the beaches are protected by a coral reef barrier that prevents having big waves knock you off your board. What I have noticed as well is that there are a lot of women who seem to love this sport as well.
