SUP | Stand Up Paddle
Stand Up Paddle or SUP, as it is also called, is sailing on a surfboard with a paddle in your hand used as a steering gear and propulsion. You paddle forward while standing upright on the board. It is recommended to start on calm water until you have balance and control. It's a fun sport for all ages.

Kitesurfing
Kitesurfing is among the wild water sports activities. Here you combine paragliding with windsurfing. The power of the wind is utilized in the form of a large dragon, which makes you sail on the water, on a form of a surfboard. Start out with a gentle breeze and on shallow water, then everyone can learn how to kitesurf.
