I'm SUP and surf instructor since 2012, lifeguard, running a SUP school in Florence and working in Adaptive Surf & SUP school on the seaside surfing with people with disabilities. I spent a lot of time traveling and surfing in many places all over the world. I have a 10 years old son, Lorenzo, I enjoy surfing or paddling with him. I'm Airbnb host and I love it!
I paddle in Florence since 2012, I was the first in town, since 2013 I organize an annual race just at Ponte Vecchio, the Uffizi SUP Race/Florence Paddle Games.I love paddling flat water, waves, river rapids
What we do
The meeting point is at the river park Il Fiorino sull'Arno, in Lungarno Pecori Giraldi, where the group will join for a briefing to explain the activity and give some technical advice before wear the wetsuit that Tommaso and Arianna will give to you.
You'll mount on the Giant Board, holding the paddle, and keep paddling for some practice on the river, than hold the handles on the board, and goooooo...
Just follow the instructions of the guides and you'll be sliding on a glassy channel created by the stream of the river to enjoy in total safety the rapid of S Niccolò, a playground in Florence city center. After a second ride you'll paddle some more meters until the view of Ponte Vecchio
The participants must communicate their size for wetsuit
