What to bring to SUP

A bathing suit is perfect and a cover-up if you want something a little more covering. No shoes are necessary on the boards and be sure not to have things that can fall off like sunglasses. If you wear sandals you can tie them on the board.

At Inti Beach you can leave items and there is a bathroom for use. For small things like keys and money, the person taking out the group will have a wet bag where you can store things. The bag will be out on the water with the group.

Of course, if someone comes with you to take photos of you from the beach you can leave things with them.

Photos of your paddle boarding

Aloha tries to take out a GoPro camera each time and snap pictures of the day and post them on their Facebook page. You can always take out a waterproof camera with you to capture the fun.
