Now you may be ready to take your skills on the road and explore someplace new.  Are you yearning to embark on your own paddleboard travel adventure but don’t know where to start?  Here’s a list of five exceptional and unique SUP getaway destinations and accommodations.  So just sit back, relax and day dream about your next SUP trip.

Punta Mita, Mexico

The Waikiki of Mexico, this laid back and tourist-friendly area is only 20 minutes from the airport in Puerto Vallarta and SUP is taking off in a big way down there. From the point break in funky Sayulita, to the rolling waves of Anclote, or the downwinders along the sparkling coast, this gorgeous peninsula is set up perfectly for stand up paddle fun.  When you go, check out the beachfront Cinco Hotel. This upscale hotel is doing a fabulous job of catering to the SUP community.  The owner has teamed up with the Pipe Master himself, Gerry Lopez, to offer SUP and yoga camps (next one is May 24-26). Not only does the hotel have SUP boards on site for guest use, but the rooms also look directly onto the Anclote surf break – known as one of the best beginner waves in Mexico.

Dana Point, California

Dana Point is a picturesque beachside community and a SUP hotspot. In the heart of Dana Point you’ll find Doheny Beach, home to the annual Battle of the Paddle and other SUP races throughout the year. Around the corner is Baby Beach, a wide sandy beach that serves as a meeting place and entry point for flat water paddling in the harbor.  For a perfectly located place to stay in Dana Point try the Dana Shores condo.

Perched atop a bluff with commanding views of the dazzling coastline and passing whales, this 2 bed/2 bath condo unit is an ideal home base for paddlers. The owner – a gracious host and avid SUP enthusiast himself – is happy to share his local paddle knowledge with guests. If you’re up for a real workout you can take the stairs from the condo directly down to the beach and paddle along the cliffs or do some surfing at the beach break.

Do you know a great way to combine surfing and exploring different beaches, towns, villages and the ever changing landscape? Booking a Surfing Safari with surf camp Pipa Brazil !
A team of experienced surfguides takes you to the best waves in this region, fitting your surfing skills. You will surf in secrets spots, where you will not have problems of overcrowding, 28/30 different types of waves that break during the year (about 14 in the summer and 16 in the winter) within 40km of coastline around Pipa.
The Surfari is ideal for those who travel alone or in small groups. Your fellow travelers are with you for three or five days, so you get a good chance to make some friends and learn from each other in the water and on the land. Our groups in general age from 18 to 35 years of age with a 50/50 mix of sexes, from all various walks of life and countries. Groups sizes of maximum 8 people plus two guides.
Surf Pipa School stands for a high level of water safety. People with zero or little surf experience will follow some classes before we will let you go free surfing. It does not matter if the waves are big, because we keep all beginners very close to the beach where the waves have less power.
Experienced Surfers paddle straight past the beginners into the line-up. Local knowledge and the use of surf forecasts will determine at which places we surf during the surf trip. Usually we will surf at three or four different places along the coastline.

Slickrock Resort, Belize

This small island on the Glover’s Reef Atoll is a true paddle paradise with endless miles of turquoise water dotted with tiny cays and islands to explore. The private island hosts only about 2 dozen guests at a time who enjoy almost every water sport imaginable including diving, fishing, SUP, kayak, kite boarding and surfing. During your week-long stay all meals are included. You’ll be delighted with the menu prepared from freshly caught fish, hand picked coconuts and other ingredients fresh from the land and sea. After dinner the ocean will lull you to sleep in your rustic beachfront cabana.

Sauble Lake, Lake Huron, Ontario

This popular Canadian summer retreat boasts warm weather, sandy beaches and miles of paddling. Lake Huron, which appears just as endless as the ocean, dominates the landscape. You could paddle for days up or down the coastline and even surf small waves most of the summer. Grab a friend and paddle from the beach up the river to Sauble Falls Park and enjoy the natural waterfalls. Cottage rentals are the lodging of choice in Sauble Beach. Try the Sandpiper and Seagull cottages built in 1937. These simple and rustic beachfront cabins offer rates starting at $145 per night.

Yes, there is good SUP and sometimes waves and “warm” water in the Great Lakes.

North Shore, Oahu, Hawaii

Hawaii’s North Shore has one of the most concentrated stretches of surf breaks in the world. Summer visitors will enjoy clear waters and calm conditions while each winter the North Shore comes alive with huge swells. Many of the surf breaks here are best suited for expert surfers but there are some wonderful spots for stand up paddling, even if you’re a beginner. Try the scenic paddle up Haleiwa River or the beaches surroundingTurtle Bay which have played host to many SUP events. Located on a picturesque point, the Turtle Bay Resort offers SUP lessons and rentals and has plenty of turtle filled lagoons to explore as well as world class waves. The hotel offers incredible ocean views or choose one of the Ocean Villas and stay just steps from the waters edge.
