Stand Up Paddle is a sport similar to surfing, the difference is, that you use a paddle to move forward and you are standing on the board. This sport, like most of the other water sports, is coming from Hawaii, where it is practised since the 50 ties. Since a few years already the S.U.P has arrived in Europe and is enjoying since 2010 a big success. However, this is really not surprising. No matter if you head out into flat water or waves, if it’s windy or windless, if you see S.U.P as pure workout or as an relaxing trip over the sea – it’s great fun in any conditions, it trains your body and improves your balance and it can be done by anyone.
To start with, the easiest way is to be on your knees and as you get more secure progressively stand up on the board. Let the fun begin !
All participants must know how to swim
All our ION CLUBs offer some tailormade SUP Excursions and Activities depending on their location. If you feel like having a real adventure, you can join us on a SUP Crossing of the Strait of Gibraltar. On Mauritius we teach you how to catch a wave with your SUP Board and in Golf de Roses we organise SUP Breakfast & Sunrise excursions.
Join a SUP Yoga Session in Dakhla or let us organise a custom made Excursion or Event for you in whatever ION CLUB Destination you are!
Feel free to use our Stand Up paddle boards if you have booked a minimum of 3 consecutive days of windsurf or kitesurf rental, we won’t charge any extras for it !
If you are not a guest already, you have the possibility to rent it of course.
A word about
ION CLUB Le Morne
Mauritius rose out of the sea from volcanic eruptions 8 million years ago. The fiery mountains slowly extinguished, leaving behind craters, craggy peaks and a tropical paradise. God must already have been a surfer, as the lava floor sank a little, allowing a coral reef to grow and almost completely encircle the island. The resulting lagoon is wonderfully smooth with a maximum depth of 4 metres. The reef itself is dependable, keeping huge fish and other beasties away.
This divine topography has been used to its fullest extent by ION CLUB, and we have been able to provide our guests with perfect conditions in this all round location for windsurfing, kitesurfing, SUP and waveriding. The starting point is the lagoon, a secure flat water play area for everybody, whether kitesurfers who prefer to romp downwind or the freestyle and freeride windsurfers who speed upwind. Further out, the reef at Little Reef or Manawa will fulfill any special advanced wishes.
June, July, August, September, October, November
The wind usually blows from east or southeast (sideshore from the left) and reaches a strength of 3-5 beaufort on average during summer in the southern hemisphere and about 4-6 beaufort during winter. In winter (April to October), the trade wind shows its best side. Between December and April there can be heavy rainfall.
We are surrounded by 3 surfing spots with different conditions for any level of surfing:
"SMALL REEF" - the Beginner spot, only 400 meters from the beach. Safety is covered by our rescue boat
ONE-EYE - THE WORLD FAMOUS ONE
One Eye is a really fast and tubby left, reserved exclusively to experts. Great place for our guests to take pictures of the pros facing the walls of water of One eye! We don't offer rental to One-Eye!
MANAWA - About 2 km out in front of the RIU Hotel Resort, Manawa is another spot for more advanced and experts surfers. A very nice left breaking on a coral reef, but not as fast and tubby as One-eye.
