Tips for Planning an Amazing SUP Adventure

Tips for Planning an Amazing SUP Adventure

Imagine you’re standing on your paddle board in crystal clear water, gazing at the mountains in the background. That would be a trip you could never forget. Planning an amazing SUP adventure can be time-consuming and stressful, but you’ll appreciate the hard work and detail you put into your vacation once you’re there. Consider the following tips when you begin constructing your next vacation!

Decide if You’re Traveling or Going Somewhere Local

No matter where you decide to go, whether it’s a local location or traveling to another state or country, your trip will be adventurous. Consider staying in your local area if your budget doesn’t allow for travel fees, such as plane tickets. Either way, choose a location well in advance so that you can plan the trip better. However, if you’re traveling by plane, ensure you understand the rules about bringing an inflatable SUP board on an airplane.

Choose Sleeping Accommodations

You also have many options to choose from when it comes to deciding on sleeping accommodations. You could either sleep at a campsite, book a hotel, or rent an Air B&B. If you’re up for a real adventure, we recommend camping—plus, the campground will most likely include many lakes or ponds for you to take your SUP board in. Once you know where you’ll be going for this trip, book a place to sleep so that you don’t have to worry about it later.

Bring Activities To Do on Your SUP Board

Have you ever done yoga on your SUP board or brought your trusting furry companion on a trip? If you’re staying in your local area, consider taking your dog on this vacation. Additionally, consider packing other gear, like yoga or fishing equipment, that you can do on your paddle board to create a unique experience.

If you’re camping out during your adventure, consider taking an instrument to enjoy the simple pleasures in the outdoors. You can download sheet music to play on your keyboard and guitar. This is a great idea if you’re planning on travelling with friends!

Understand That Nothing Goes As Planned

If you’ve been on vacation before, you can assume that not everything will go according to plan. Planning as much of the trip as possible will minimize the number of surprises you might encounter, but factor in that some things might not go your way. For example, you might find the perfect lake location, but it could be closed, or the weather might halt that day’s paddle boarding. Understand that you should have backup ideas in mind just in case you need to change your plans.

Don’t forget to have fun while you’re planning your SUP adventure. It can be stressful to ensure all of your accommodations are in order, but it’s better to have taken the time to plan every detail than to be frustrated on your vacation when things don’t work out. Where will you go for your SUP adventure?
