SUP has trans­formed the way in which I view and appre­ci­ate my life.
You’re always young enough to learn and to grow.

I am always com­ing off the water as a dif­fer­ent person:
More pure, more calm, more hap­py, more in touch with the beau­ty we are.

Envi­ron­men­tal Engage­ment2020–03-16T14:25:16+00:00

Over sev­er­al years now ZEN SUP has made great strides in high­light­ing the ongo­ing plas­tic pol­lu­tion sit­u­a­tion on the Ria For­mosa near Faro, Algarve.
When time, con­di­tions and peo­ple pow­er allow we stage SUP events to com­bat this problem.
Fur­ther­more we make it our busi­ness to remove plas­tic and oth­er pol­lu­tants from the water­ways we vis­it on our reg­u­lar tours.

True Pro­fes­sion­als2020–03-02T17:10:19+00:00

We like to regard our­selves, not as the biggest or even the best, but cer­tain­ly one of the best SUP oper­a­tors in the Algarve.
We are trained and qual­i­fied by the worlds lead­ing SUP skills organ­i­sa­tions (please take a look at the var­i­ous insti­tu­tions at the very bot­tom of this page) and we spe­cialise in the evo­lu­tion and devel­op­ment of SUP education
We know the loca­tions and we break down the tech­nique to such a degree that we can almost guar­an­tee 100% suc­cess and sat­is­fac­tion on your first out­ing with us.

With us you will not just have an expe­ri­ence — you will learn to SUP for life.

Price Promise2020–03-02T17:11:37+00:00

We may not be the cheap­est around, sure you will find cheap­er, but that’s exact­ly what you will get!

How­ev­er in terms of qual­i­ty, con­tent, atten­tion to detail and over­all val­ue for mon­ey there is no oth­er exclu­sive SUP oper­a­tor who will do what we do, in the way that we do it.

And all our clients feel this way upon com­ple­tion of a tour with ZEN SUP.

We Work Around Your Needs2020–03-02T17:12:32+00:00

We are not just a SUP book­ing agency, tour oper­a­tor or tourist phe­nom­e­na. We take every book­ing on a client by client basis and tai­lor our activ­i­ties to best suit your needs, skills, expe­ri­ence and desires.

We eval­u­ate the pre­vail­ing con­di­tions at each of our loca­tions and we tai­lor the event to ful­fil your wish­es as best we can.
We want it to be as easy, com­fort­able and enjoy­able as pos­si­ble for you, your fam­i­ly and friends on and off the water safe­ly after a mem­o­rable SUP experience.
