valencia Stand Up Paddle Boarding
SUP, dudes! Stand up paddle boarding, or SUP'ing, is the biggest board sport to hit the water in years. And you can master the basics on your stag weekend in Valencia.
Wearing a wetsuit that shows off your summer-ready beach bod, you'll paddle around Valencia's swanky Juan Carlos I Marina. This epic destination is just 10 minutes away from the city centre by taxi, and it's well worth a visit in its own right. Home to the famous Americas Cup building, which looks like the bridge of a tanker, and crowded with the playthings of the rich and famous, the Marina is an ideal spot for topping up your tan and getting cheeky with posh totty!
Take to the water with an experienced SUP instructor, and you'll get a completely different view of the port. Paddling around the yachts and out to sea, you'll see the water craft up close and personal. Plus, you'll top up your tan and get an awesome core workout. Clench those butt muscles and keep your stomach tight as you use your upper body to power the board through the water with your paddle.
SUP'ing is a legendary way to see the sights, and an outstanding introduction to water-based board sports in general. They've been doing it in Hawaii for generations, and it's what all the big wave surfers do when there are no waves to catch.
You can't go on a stag weekend in Valencia and not make the most of this port city's enviable location! Warm sun, beautiful Mediterranean waters, cooling breezes... what more could you want from an outdoor activity? Cure hangovers, see the sights, and impress the ladies. You'll love it.
