H2O Extreme expands its fleet of Naish paddleboards to include the Nalu 11’6”, Mana Soft-Tops 10’0” and a Hokua 8’10”.
H2O teaches on the calm waters of the lagoon before progressing onto the mini-reef to teach wannabe SUPers how to catch their first wave. The outer-reefs are an easy paddle from H2O Extreme’s bases at The Sands and Forty Thieves, handling swell from fun-sized to overhead.
The best seasons are Dec-March and June-September — this coincides with the Kaskazi and Kuzi tradewinds so you can surf in the morning and kite or windsurf in the afternoon!
With year-round water temperature of 30° C (86° F), air-temperature of 32° C (90° F) and reliable swell patterns, the tropical Indian Ocean coastline of Kenya is a great place to learn stand-up paddleboard.
H2O Extreme watersports is based in Diani Beach, Kenya and operates out of 3 sites offering Kitesurfing, Windsurfing and SUP, all on Naish equipment.
