passionate about what we do!

What we started by doing alone, discovering SPECIAL PLACES where only Stand Up Paddle practice can take us, turned into the FIRST SUP SUP  resident in Praia do Creiro (Portinho da Arrábida). We made way for the sea in 2016 and continued unconditionally IN LOVE with what we do.

We are very focused on providing INTENSE EXPERIENCES, sharing knowledge and offering a good atmosphere, without ever neglecting safety.  

We are the ONLY SUP SCHOOL CERTIFIED by the Portuguese Surfing Federation in Arrábida.
We are registered with Turismo de Portugal as a Maritime Tourist Entertainment Company and
recognized as Nature Tourism.

We are duly licensed by the ICNF (Institute for the Conservation of Nature and Forests) to operate within the Marine Protected Area of the Arrábida Natural Park, Parque Marinho Prof. Luiz Saldanha.
Arrábida Stand Up Paddle offers SUP Classes and Tours (individual or in groups) and Boat Experiences. We also carry out tailor-made events, such as Birthday Parties, Bachelor Parties and Corporate Events, among other moments that we are available to help make real.

All coaches are certified by IPDJ (Portuguese Institute of Sports and Youth) and FPS (Portuguese Surfing Federation)

Âncora Sustentabilidade

"We are from the Sea and Nature" and we see the impacts of human action on a daily basis. We are far from perfect, but we have a commitment to Nature that we seek to fulfill in all our activities. Not only do we not leave rubbish on the beach, but on all our walks we pick up the rubbish that we find in the sea. We seek to learn more about the options we take at Arrábida Stand Up Paddle and make choices with less environmental impact whenever possible.

And as sustainability is not just about the Environment, we value inclusion, we were part of the pioneering Adapted Surf action in Portugal and we are prepared to teach SUP to those with special conditions.
