Complementing windsurfing, sailing or other wind-dependent sports on non-windy days, SUP is a great sport activity in Velipoje and rapidly becoming very popular. Velipoje offers mostly flat-water paddling as proper waves are rarely seen in the sea. An alternative activity is paddling the Buna river nearby, which is fully adequate for this sport.

SUP is a superior core workout on flat water. It is an ideal sport for cross-training as it brings together legs, back, feet, arms, neck and stomach muscles in a graceful display of core strength and balance. The evident advantages of Stand Up Paddle boarding is a rise in the amount of your fitness. This can be a great sport for mix-training as you will see that you apply the muscles inside your legs, arms, back, abdomen as well as your feet. Along with paddling you'll use lot of different body simply balance around the board, which provides you more exercise than you understand. If you are looking at both aerobic and strength exercise, this is actually the perfect sport.
