When it comes to spotting wildlife using a SUP is a great way to see nature. It’s quiet, you’re high up so things are easier to spot and there’s no chance of injuring wildlife with any fast moving parts such as engines.
Paddling with Manta Rays has to be right up there with some of the coolest things to watch from a SUP. And having a drone there to capture your epic wildlife encounter is always good (if you don’t mind the buzzz!)
“I was on a search for some waves, the waves were small and I saw what looked like a manta from shore. When I got in the water I realized there were about 12 or 13 mantas cruising around and half of them were babies. I’ve never seen anything like it before! The things we see & experience on a day to day basis here in Hawaii are pretty amazing!” Bullet Obra.
