We have wanted to try stand up paddle boarding for a while so when the opportunity arouse we jumped at it.

Lake Arenal was a great location to choose, it was a shame it was a little cloudy as the views of Arenal Volcano were obscured.

Paddle Boarding is fun, standing up is fairly easy once you know where best to place your feet on the board. Within about 5 minutes of being pushed out into the lake everyone was happily paddle boarding.

We had a nice break half way along our route to try some paddle board yoga and some tips and tricks to test your balance and control. Needless to say we all spent more time falling into the lake than we did standing up!
