SUP is much easier to learn than regular surfing. This makes it more accessible to those who may have found regular surf lessons too much. With similarities to kayaking, you get to enjoy that floating feeling as well as the opportunity to land and explore hidden beaches with ease. Here at Jah Shaka, we provide SUP tours for those who want professional guidance. We offer a variety of tours too so no matter what you’re looking for, we have something for you.

  • Sunrise or morning tour  –  This tour will take you supping away from the tourist at one of the calmest times in the morning. You’ll also enjoy the grottos and caves; a unique way to see the famous cave without the hustle and bustle.
  • Afternoon at the lake tour – Enjoy a nice paddle around our beautiful Barragem Da Bravura, the perfect spot for beginners and families thanks to it’s calm water. On this tour you’ll explore the nature and wonderful scenery of the Algarve in all it’s natural beauty.
  • Afternoon at the lagoon tour – The Lagoon in Alvor is a peacful and sheltered place, perfect when there is swell in town and the morning tour is not available. Depending on season, you can enjoy a perfect sunset.
  • River Tour – The River Tour is the perfect intro to flat water paddle boarding. You’ll enjoy a gentle morning of paddling downstream in the beautiful town of Aljezur.

Despite this, we also offer SUP equipment rental at competitive prices for those who want the freedom to explore at their own place. Enjoy the amazing views of the grottos in Lagos and explore the caves and beaches of our beatiful coast line for as long as you like.
