Stand Up Paddle Board SUP Miami

Stand Up Paddleboards are a great activity for water sport enthusiasts of all ages and fitness levels. Our fleet of stable and buoyant boards make learning to paddle easy, quick, and fun!

The sport is an ancient form of surfing with its roots in ancient Polynesia. The modern sport became popular when surf instructors stood on their boards in order to manage groups of novice surfers. The increase in visibility allowed them to see everything around them – such as incoming swells.

On our side of the ocean, we’ve been paddling around the bay on our windsurfing boards for many years. Using a one piece mast to push off at low tide, we appeared more like gondoliers than surfers.

Advances in equipment allow paddlers to enjoy open, flat water as well as waves. The angle of visibility offered by a SUP adds to the enjoyment while providing a workout. The new paddles and boards are designed to create fantastic forward motion while maintaining rail-to-rail control in waves and swells.

Begin with a 12′ 6′ to 12′ long board to build confidence. As you are ready for the challenge, move onto a narrower board. By the time you are comfortable with an 11′ board, it is time to move to the ocean side and practice on the small waves. After that, it’s all up to you.

The majority of our SUP fleet includes an insert where a sail can be attached making it a multi-use hull allowing for Longboard Cruising at its best. Come out and give it a try!  Paddle boarding is a perfect way to enjoy Miami’s Biscayne Bay.

  1. If I want to paddle board with a group of my friends (2-4 people) and I want an instructor, do I need to schedule a time to go in? Or do I go any time in between your hours of operation?

    • Hi Jennifer. Happy to have you and your group paddle board–Miami’s Biscayne Bay is beautiful and safe. You are welcome to rent a stand up paddle board between 10:00 and 5:00 (return by 6:00). We include an overview of the basic paddling technique on land prior to your launch and folks feel comfortable on the water within about 10 minutes. Usually folks request a private instructor accompany them if they want to work on more advanced paddling techniques. If there is something more specific that you are looking for, just give us a call at 305 892-8992 or email sailboardsmiami@gmail.com. We look forward to seeing you on the water soon.

  2. Hi there! Awesome website!

    Is the free instruction at the store or on a water?
    Is there anyone who could take a photo when I’m practicing?
    I’m coming by myself, I’m going to visit Miami for a business trip 🙂
    Thank you for your time.
