Paddleboarding is a fun activity that combines surfing and kayaking. It's a great workout and a relaxing experience. Standup paddleboarding has become increasingly popular over the past few years, and Croatia is now home to many standup paddling centers. Paddleboarding is a favorite activity during Yacht Week in Croatia.
There are two main types of stand up paddleboards: sit-on-top boards and inflatable boards. Sit-on-top boards are typically used for beginners who want to learn how to paddleboard. Inflatable boards are easier to transport and store, making them ideal for travel. Both types of boards offer similar benefits, including exercise, relaxation, and adventure.
