Official Eleuthera Harbour Island brings you more information on paddle boarding in North Eleuthera.
The Caribbean’s tranquil, turquoise waters are excellent for stand-up paddle boarding. Stand-up paddle boarding (“SUP”), which combines the adrenaline of surfing with the workout of kayaking and the peacefulness of a leisurely float on the water, has exploded in popularity since its rebirth in Hawaii in the early twenty-first century. Riders can glide through the ocean and enjoy spirited rides on the little waves that slowly descend on the gorgeous pink and white sand beaches of Harbour Island and North Eleuthera using a huge, very buoyant board and a carved wooden paddle.
Simple balancing is the key to staying on top of your Paddle Board. You must keep your front and back legs parallel while balancing your weight in the centre of the board. Once you’ve mastered it, it’ll only be a matter of time before you’re sailing around Harbour Islands’ pink sand beaches!
Paddle boarding is an excellent form of workout in addition to going on a cruise. As a physically demanding water activity, the art of technique in balancing yourself is extremely useful. You will fall if you are not balanced! The key is to find your balance before moving too far out on your board. That way, if you do fall, it won’t be in the centre of the shoals.
