SUP – in Kinugawa –
SUP is an acronym for Stand Up Paddle surfing. Also known as paddle-boarding, it is an activity where you stand on a large surfboard and paddle yourself.
It is an activity that started as a leg training for riding big waves in Hawaii. It is characterized by stability and easy propulsion.
NAOC’s SUP will guide you to the finest premium space of the Kinugawa gorge.
The area to be used has a calm flow, so even first-timers can participate with peace of mind.
Practice at the starting point. Once you get used to how to row and how to play, continue cruising further. The feeling of controlling the board by manipulating the paddle with your own power, and the feeling of letting yourself go with the flow and the wind is exceptional!
Sometimes I stop by the beach, swim, and jump off the rocks. Fully enjoy the freedom of SUP + α and a highly satisfying time.
Enjoy an elegant SUP tour to your heart’s content at the mysterious water lounge of Kinugawa surrounded by deep rock walls!
