Downwinder one of the most effortless, enjoyable and exhilarating aspects of Stand Up Paddle and one of our favourites. Harnessing wind and tide on a SUP is like riding a roller coaster on water. When conditions allow, i.e., wind, tide and paddler all heading in the same direction you’ve got yourself the ideal Downwinder ride. On the Ria Formosa or the ocean this discipline works magically for beginner, novice and expert paddlers alike and something we are most happy and willing to share with you on your next visit with us.
