Chillasana Yoga and Surf in Playa Carrillo now has paddle boards.
Also known as Stand Up Surfing, these long wide boards are more stable than a standard surfboard and I could see it as a great way to learn to surf.
The paddle gets you out into open water fast.
Recently a class was surrounded by a pod of dolphins.
Steve and I tried it recently and we found it great exercise for the body core – it’s all about balance. We got the hang of it and zipped across Carrillo Bay to land on the beach for a gorgeous sunset and a cool beer.
Paddle Boarding is available in both Playa Samara and Playa Carrillo.
Chillasana, is stationed in the center of the Carrillo Beach
and is operated by John and his wife, Kelly. http://www.chillasanayogasurf.com/location-contact/
She teaches yoga on the beach and (she says) sometimes on paddle boards. That, I want to see.
John and his guides teach regular surfing, as well. With some expertise, you can rent both kinds of boards.
Have you tried paddle boarding? How did you do?
