ZEN SUP is dedicated to providing the highest standard of water education, voyages of discovery and wholesome experiences.
SUP is an experience — ZEN SUP is for life.
People want quality, in terms of teaching, equipment, and experience
At ZEN SUP we deliver all of the above.
Our select team comes from a long tradition of water sports and works dilligently to ensure that your time spent with us will give you ZENsations, feelings and memories that you will cherish over your lifetime.
Attention to detail, tailoring conditions to client ages, skills and experience has stood to us over 5 years now and has afforded us a zero accident rate.
Punctuality is our default response to your reservation with us. We value your time and our time and how it relates to the overall SUP Tour experience.
We ensure that we are there on time to greet you when you arrive at the designated meeting point.
Every client, every group, every event deserves our best attention and without exception every person we have taken on the water over 5 years now has an exciting, enjoyable and life changing experience.
Please see the reviews on the various social medias, Trip Advisor and here on our website.
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.
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.
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 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.
Over the years we have hosted mostly families in small and large groups. Our youngest client has been 4 years of age and our eldest 76.
We have special little ‘lollipop‘ paddles to accommodate the needs of the little ones. And children of all ages do very well as they have little fear, great balance and learn so fast.
All that’s left for us to do is impart clearly the techniques required and off they go.
We are very happy to host children young and old.
