About SUP


SUP is an abbreviation for Stand Up Paddle. SUP simply means, that you get up on a surfboard and paddle forward with a paddle. You can try SUP, especially in Marielyst, on Guldborgsund and in Naturpark Maribosøerne. The many shallow water areas make it easy and safe for beginners to practice. If you would like a more thorough introduction to positioning, paddle grip and sailing technique, we have intro courses all year round. Are you into beautiful nature experiences, all the while getting plenty of exercise? Then try Stand Up Paddle here .



SUP has roots in Hawaiian culture. Here, the surfers chose to line up on their surfboards so that they could get enough speed with a paddle to be able to surf. Even on the days when the waves were not perfect for wave surfing.

For the past 10 years, SUP has become a major leisure activity in Denmark. The sport has developed into a popular activity on flat water, and both clubs and surf schools have taken up the activity. SUP is especially popular as a form of exercise when the Danish coasts, lakes and streams are to be explored.



SUP is for everyone! To get the best experience, we recommend that you take a short intro course to the activity. If you love being on the water and in nature, come and join us – the SUP activity gives you absolutely extraordinary experiences out there.

Most beginners are familiar with SUP after a few hours of teaching when it comes to the very basics. If you throw yourself into SUP on your own, remember to be aware of wind and weather and stay close to the shore.



SUP is basically easy to go to as a beginner. In order for your safety to be in order, it is important that you are never overconfident! For example, you should never go out in offshore winds. You should also be aware that it is quite hard to paddle in crosswinds or headwinds.

Be aware that, for safety reasons, you should always have a leash around your foot (safety line between board and person). Just like you should wear a life jacket. It is mandatory to bring a vest – even if there are several on the board, such as parents / children. Bring vests for everyone, and we recommend that you wear the vest.
