What to Wear Stand Up Paddle Boarding?
When embarking on a stand-up paddle (SUP) tour, it’s essential to wear comfortable and appropriate attire to ensure an enjoyable experience. Here are some recommended clothing and gear for stand-up paddle boarding:
- Swimwear or Quick-Drying Clothing: Board shorts, rash guards, or moisture-wicking shirts and shorts are ideal choices.
- Sun Protection: The tropical sun in Costa Rica can be intense, so don’t forget to wear sunscreen with high SPF, a hat, and UV-blocking sunglasses.
- Personal Flotation Device (PFD): While not always mandatory, it’s a good idea to wear a PFD or life jacket, especially if you’re not a confident swimmer or if it’s required by the tour operator.
- Waterproof Bag: If you need to carry personal items such as a phone, camera, or snacks, consider using a waterproof bag or a dry bag to keep your belongings dry.

“Alfredo did a great job guiding us to Chora Island at Samara. I was on a SUP and my husband was in a kayak. Alfredo was very friendly and knowledgeable about the local wildlife and interesting facts. Great bilingual guide. Recommended!”
“My wife and I did two trips with Alfredo over two days: SUP the río Ora and SUP to snorkel at Chora Island. We are experienced paddle boarders but enjoy guides for their knowledge, transportation, and practicing our Spanish. Alfredo and his assistant were great for that.”
