VENICE, Italy – Stand up paddleboarding in Venice, Italy combines a world of cultures, giving you a chance to paddle alongside Gondoliers, locals, and a deep heritage. A group of local gondoliers are now fully embracing stand up paddle boarding and presenting the flooded city from a whole different and unique vantage point. Eliana Argine, one of the local sup enthusiasts, paddles Gondolas and stand up paddle boards in the canals of the city and is one of the most active voices for the sport in the community.
She helps to organize the SURFIN' VENICE, the SUP event featured above, and strongly encourages people to head to the city of romance, get on paddleboards and have the time of your life. Argine rows as a gondolier and also does stand up paddling, offering a unqiue SUP & GONDOLA experience. If you want to experience the all-inclusiveness and cheerfulness of the SUP community in Italy while getting exposed to a whole different culture of watermen, head over to Venice and contact Argine for a sup trip for the books. "I also row as a gondoliere and I would like you to join me in this unique experience: SUP & GONDOLA," says the Venician sup devotee. "I'd love to make the paddlers know that it is possible to come here, inside the water city of all, and experience this meeting of sea culture."
