There are many ways to discover the coast line of Koh Samui, however doing it by night from a hybrid stand up paddleboard that is illuminated by LED lights has to be the most fun and unique ways of doing it. There is nothing SUP 1else quite like night paddle boarding and when you add coloured lights into the equation you have an experience quite like no other. Unlike kayaking and paddle boarding during the day night paddle boarding is really not about how much distance you can cover, but more about the 2000 lumens of light that illuminates around 50 feet of the ocean around you and 15 – 20 feet down, this light attracts ocean dwelling sea life as well as anybody that catches sight of you and your fellow paddle boarders from the shore.

The hybrid kayak/stand up paddle catamaran boards used for night paddling are unbelievably stable, there are places where you can keep your belongings dry so nothing has to be left on shore, you can take along liquid refreshments and paddle lying down, sitting down or standing up, which is great for those who have little or no experience of paddleboarding and great for those who know the ropes. Paddle boarding is an eco friendly, healthy activity you can share with family or friends. You don’t need to be a strong swimmer, be very fit or have any special equipment.

The paddle boards offer a wide range of ways to enjoy the ocean, there is nothing quite like enjoying the sunset from your own board, no more unique way to enjoy an ocean picnic with wine and cheese in a secluded location, they offer fascinating way to explore the nightlife of Chaweng and demand a great deal of attention from those enjoying a party on the shore as you and your party gently drift by with your own light show (the lights change colour at the touch of a button), stopping occasionally to enjoy the fire shows on the beach. Don’t be surprised to find a few party goers swimming out to find out what you are up to and finding yourself the centre of attention.
