Is stand up paddle boarding easy?

Stand up paddle boarding requires some basic core strength, balance and an overall understanding of the equipment you're using (paddles, leashes, the board, the fins). If you have this basic understanding, stand up paddle boarding is a walk in the park (or, more so on the water!) and you will get the hang of it within no time. But that is exactly why a quick crash course from our world-class professional athlete would facilitate the learning curve tremendously.

Each tour is around 1h30! This amount of time is perfect for us to be able to teach you all the essentials and basics of paddle boarding.

Types of water conditions

The Mediterranean is blessed with very calm water conditions due to its enclosed nature. Additionally, this area of Javea is in a bay itself, meaning that even when the open sea is rough, we are protected and sheltered by the coastline! We are fortunate enough to have some of the best conditions on the Costa Blanca, with crystal-flat waters almost every single day! However, no matter the conditions, this professional paddle board lesson will make the best of any conditions that may be encountered!

Best time of day to paddle board

Be it in the morning when it’s less busy, or later in the afternoon to experience beautiful sunsets, paddle boarding with Siesta Advisor is exceptional all-day. In the morning people can enjoy the privacy and the tranquillity of the sea, at midday those who tend to get cold in the sea can enjoy the refreshing sunlight warming your body whilst you float around, and in the afternoon you can enjoy the beautiful sunsets and prepare yourself for a calm and refreshing night with the family or friends! Additionally, paddle boarding in Javea can be done all-year! Javea boasts with having around 330 sunny days a year, meaning that even winter temperatures can reach 25oc! Let’s not forget, out of season there is significantly reduced tourism, meaning that you will be able to enjoy more private and intimate tours with your friends and family, often having a guide just to yourself!

How to access Javea

Luckily, because this tour starts from central Javea and it takes place early in the morning, you will not have any issues getting to this location or accessing the starting point. In other words, it is very central to Javea, so this paddle board tour is also perfect for those who may not have transport but still wish to experience the paddle boarding adventures in Javea!

Parking is also significantly easier from this point, where we have access to almost an entire car park just to ourselves where you'll be able to leave all your personal belongings. Equally, it stops you from having to trek miles in order to get back to your car after your paddle boarding excursion, meaning that it's just that easier for you and your group!

Recommended clothing for paddle boarding in Javea

We highly recommend doing the excursion in swimwear and/or clothes that you don’t mind getting wet as paddle boarding is a water-based activity. Appropriate footwear (not flip-flop, not slippers, closed beach shoes) is also important, not only for your safety, but also for your personal comfort when disembarking on small, beautiful pebbly beaches. One or two towels are also advisable.

Additional things recommended for your paddle boarding excursion

Drinking water is essential as to avoid dehydration throughout the tour, and a few snacks (sandwiches, fruits, chocolate bars, nuts, sweets) to help with energy.
