WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT US
SUP fun in the Italian sun
I love this place. I love the SUP surfing, the touring around the Island, playing SUPball and Mario & Diana (the owners). My girlfriend and I went to Carloforte to visit SUP Adventures. From the 1st moment, Mario & Diana made us very welcome and nothing was too much hassle. They organised the days adventures of SUPing, SUPball, bike riding and surfing (you could do as much as little as you wanted!). And although my England SUPball team lost to the Italians (nothing new there!) in the 1st ever game of SUPball played in Italy, it was brilliant to play the game on beautiful waters with fun people. There is a re-match happening in the not too distance future! We, the English, are not going down like that! Anyway, my advice - go visit and go have fun!
Amazing five days with Sup Adventures
I visited Carloforte as part of an arranged tour, and a large group of other paddle boarders. Sup Adventures (Diana and Mario in particular), were faultless. From the moment we were picked up, to when they waved us off on the last day, they went above and beyond what was expected of them. There were plenty of activities for everyone in the group of all abilities; SUP tours, SUP ball, SUP yoga, bike rides etc. On one outing a few of us swam off into a cave which was fun! They recommended good restaurants in the evenings and the hotel we stayed in provided breakfast and lunch. Transport was always on time, equipment was perfect and they were always friendly and accommodating. To top if off, San Pietro Island is stunning. I would recommend this holiday to anyone.
Very friendly and well organised
Diana and Mario are very hard working and energetic and looked after us so well; carrying our boards and setting up for us so all we had to do was turn up and enjoy it. The setting is gorgeous, Carloforte is a small pretty town with enough good places to eat and drink and a busy marina with lots of sail boats. The beaches are clean and the coast line is stunning. Make sure you play SUP Ball - great fun!
