SUP South Africa: Explore Addington Beach, Durban
Hit the waves at Addington Beach: A top Surf SUP location
The rocks along the harbour wall teem with marine life. Look down into the clear waters as you paddle and you’ll see an array of reef fish, rays and even sea turtles if you’re lucky. The shore break is generally small along this stretch of the beachfront, so it’s easy to get out back on your SUP board making this a great area for beginners and a perfect place to SUP in South Africa.
If the ocean is really messed up from an onshore wind, the Point Waterfront Canal is just 1km away and the guys at Xpression can give you a permit access so you can paddle along here. It’s a well-maintained ecosystem with lots of marine life to SUP with.
Be sure to hit-up the friendly team who can guide you on the best SUP locations based on your paddling needs. They offer a rental service at the shop, where you can hire a SUP for the day or a few hours.
