What's SUP?


Stand Up Paddling is hot, is currently the fastest growing water sport, and is accessible to everyone!

In Stand Up Paddling you stand on your SUP board and move yourself forward with a paddle, which you pull through the water on both sides.
For that reason, SUP is a total body workout, you train your legs, buttocks, abdomen, back, arms and shoulders.

Enkhuizen with it's canals, harbours, polder and the IJsselmeer is a very suitable place to SUP!


SUP can be done any time and in any water. The board is at least 10ft (3 meters) long, and therefore it is very stable and anyone can learn easily.

SUP is the perfect way to explore Enkhuizen from the water, it's never the same, and you keep discovering new things while being on your board!
