Summer in Australia is synonymous with the outdoors, and nothing says Aussie summer more than a stand-up paddle boarding sesh. Stand Up Paddle SA costs a cruisy $25/hour, and is not only an amazing workout, but is a gorgeous way to get outdoors and have some fun.
Jump on the board and grab your paddle, and before you know it, you’ll be gliding around Adelaide’s waters like an absolute pro. SUP SA have got a great range of boards for racing and training, and they even teach paddle board yoga if your balance is particularly impressive.
