Stand-up Paddleboarding (SUP)
Stand-up Paddleboarding also known as SUP is a very popular sport at the beaches. Wrightsville Beach SUP has been named one of the best “SUP Hubs” in the United States by Outside magazine. Wrightsville Beach hosts the East Coast’s largest SUP race called the Carolina Cup.
Carolina Beach and Kure Beach are also great waters for Stand-up Paddleboarding and competitions. There are active paddleboard clubs in all three beach towns.
Paddle within the beautiful ocean ecosystem. You’ll be up close with numerous fish, birds and dolphins. Feel free to stop and explore the smaller barrier islands.
If departing from Wrightsville Beach, a SUP adventure could easily land you on the Masonboro Island Reserve, the longest undisturbed barrier island in southeastern North Carolina. While there you will see native wildlife and can play on the beach. Be sure to take a waterproof bag for drinks, mobile phone and sunscreen.
Our experienced SUP instructors and paddleboard rentals are ready to hit the water with you. In addition to Stand-up Paddleboarding lessons, you will love the tours of the Intracoastal Waterway around the barrier islands. This is a water sport workout both adults and children enjoy.
