SUP Eco Adventures is here to help you experience the exciting new sport of Stand-Up Paddle Boarding. Our mission is to get as many people as possible out onto the water enjoying nature from a unique perspective. Central Florida has an amazing array of wildlife--manatees, dolphins, turles, stringrays, osprey, pelicans, countless fish, and many other birds and animals.
Stand-Up Paddle Boarding. SUP is one of the fastest growing sports in the world. SUP is a cross between a kayak and a surfboard. Participants utilize a one bladed paddle to steer and propel themselves across waterways. It is stable and easy to learn, enabling beginners to enjoy this fun and exciting sport with limited instruction.
SUP is an emerging global sport with its roots as an ancient Polynesian form of surfing. When the ancient Polynesians started this form of surfing they used SUP as a way for instructors to have a better view of their students. By standing on their boards, using a one bladed paddle, they had a bird's-eye-view, increasing visibility of what was going on around them. Today, flat water Stand-Up Paddle boarding allows individuals to see fish swimming beneath them, stingrays flying across the sandy bottom and manatee and dolphin swimming nearby.
So, if you would like the opertunity to see these amazing creatures, give SUP Eco Adventures a call at 321-507-6058 or drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. All our tours are by resevation only, to ensure we keep our groups nice and small and limit our footprint when we visit our local wildlife.
They are adapted to swim, fish and survive in the different waters of the Indian River Lagoon. For example, the waters of the Indian River Lagoon average only 3 or 4 feet deep. The dolphins have adapted to the swallow waters and can easily maneuver in the area.
When baby dolphins are first born, they actually have a small amount of fur, which they lose as they grow older.
Dolphins are found in temperate, tropical and subtropical water
On average can swim 2-4 mph, but can reach speeds of up to 20 mph
Most individuals who are looking to purchase their first stand up paddle board will get a general purpose board. This will allow them to experience the amazing sensation of walking on water and provide them a platform which they can use in the surf or the flat-water. Contact SUP Eco Adventures at www.supecoadventures.com or via email email@example.com for more information on stand up paddle boards.
Most stand up paddle boards can be put into one of three classes, general, race and cruising boards. Most boards are designed to be utilized on either flat water or surf. Most individuals when they first start paddle boarding begin on a general SUP board. This is the board which most closely resembles a surf board. It normally has rounded rails, a stringer running down the center, elevated rocker and a deck pad. This type of board offers great stability and can be used in either flat-water or surf conditions.The second type of SUP board is the race board. This type of board is a designed to be fast and cut through the waves. This board is generally not used to learn on since its design is narrow and its not normally as maneuverable as a general board. In addition, a race board is much more responsive making it tippier and more difficult to ride. This design leads to a board which is much faster through the water and is best utilized by someone who is experienced.
When picking a board, this is just one of the questions you should ask yourself, “What am I going to be doing with the board?” This will go a long way in determining which type of board to purchase and what your overall SUP experience will be. So, whether you’re looking for a board to surf waves, explore the flat-water or do some flat-water exploration, there is a stand up paddle board made for you.
This time of year the water on the Indian River Lagoon becomes very clear and warm, which draws in some of our special guests. The manatee come through our area to feed on the local sea grass and mangroves. While we were out on one of our recent paddle boarding tours we found ourselves surrounded by five manatees and one decided to be very friendly. As you can see from the video, it was very happy to see us and swam between a couple of boards just to investigate and say hi.
