Mexican Caribbean Kitesurf is about beaches, palm trees, hammocks and a Kiteboarding and Paddle Surf school in Tulum, a paradise in the Mexican Caribbean.
Paddle Surf, known too as SUP (Stand Up Paddle Surfing), is becoming a fashionable sport on many beaches around the world. The best thing about it, is that does not require a great physical or technical condition as kite surfing, surfing or windsurfing. It can be practiced at any age and is quite easy to learn.
SUP consists on sliding over the water, up on a board of 3 meters or more, driven with a paddle. Standing on a board is the best way to enjoy the sea from another perspective.
It is a very complete sport. If practiced regularly increases our balance and muscle tone especially legs (which are slightly bent when paddling), abdomen and arms.
It can be said that Paddle Surf can be practiced in two basic ways:
- the “quiet” way, with a simple, relaxed and safe paddling trip in the sea or a lagoon; and
- the “extreme” or surfer way, catching waves powered by a paddle, being able to surf incredible waves as any surfer does with a conventional board;
The improved balance properties have already made that meditation and yoga classes are being taught on a SUP board floating in the water.
We will explain these and other good Paddle Surf characteristics later in this blog. For now, we encourage you to take a course of Paddle Surf to work your balance and learn the basic techniques of paddling. It would just take one hour or two and you will enjoy the sport very much.
In Mexican Caribbean Kitesurf we offer one-hour paddle surf course followed by an extra hour of practice for just 50 USD. We will teach you the SUP’s basic maneuvers, how to use the paddle to move and rotate on the water, and many other amazing things about SUP. The best part is that we offer the course in the incredible beach of Tulum in the Mayan Riviera.
So… Stand Up and Paddle!
