Frequently Asked Questions

What should I wear on SUP Holidays?

Wear comfortable clothes that you don't mind getting wet. A swimming suit is a must in the summertime, since refreshing dips are practically obligatory. During spring or autumn, we recommend a hoodie or a wind-stopper jacket to keep you warm. The Soča River is quite cold in those months, so if you decide to take a dip, we can provide you with a short wetsuit free of charge.

Who will be our guide?

The SUP Holidays Slovenia are guided by experienced and ASI certified SUP instructors.

Who can attend the SUP Holidays?

The holiday is suitable for people who can swim and are in reasonable physical shape. The tours are not demanding and you need no prior experiences with stand-up paddle boarding. Children are also most welcome to join. Those over 12 years old can join us on their own board, while younger kids can sit on their parent’s SUP board, providing they already have experience in stand-up paddling.

Can I join if I don’t have any SUP experience?

We try to provide the best possible experience on our holidays, so we use very stable Red Paddle Co boards, perfect for beginners or travellers with little experience.

What should I bring with me?

We recommend comfortable sport clothes, swimsuits, a towel, comfortable sport shoes for hiking, a sweater and wind-stopper jacket, sunglasses, sunscreen and a hat / cap.

What happens in the event of bad weather?

We will gladly take you stand-up paddle boarding in sunny or cloudy (dry) weather, but cannot in the event of heavy rain, windy weather or strong river currents. If the weather forecast looks rainy, we will try to reschedule the SUP Holiday to another date or another location.
