Why not give Paddle Surfing a try when on holiday in the Seychelles...

Stand up paddle surfing (SUP), or in the Hawaiian language Hoe he'e nalu, is a unique form of surfing ideal for warm waters like that of the Seychelles. Hoe he'e nalu directly translated into English - hoe means paddle, he'e means to surf or slide and nalu means wave.

The main difference between Paddle boarding and surfing is the equipment—paddle boarding requires a paddle and a longer, wider board. The paddle allows surfers to propel themselves and catch waves a bit more easily. When a wave is approaching, the paddle is used to get to the crest of the wave and is then lifted from the water when the surfer actually catches it.

Why not bring your own stand up paddle board when you come to Seychelles on holiday. If the waves are not breaking, you can always explore the breathtaking coast line of Mahe with your stand up paddle board.

Mahé Island Seychelles has many bays to practise your stand up paddle boarding such as Beau Vallon bay in the north, Anse Royale bay on the east coast and Anse La Mouche bay on the west coast. These are just three examples of the most amazing bays that are available on Mahé Island for you to explore.
