“Paddleboarding is super fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

You may get a little bit lost at the beginning but after a few minutes you get the hang of it, and all I thought was "I will reach the other coast". It was challenging but very rewarding and fun, especially when I saw the elders riding faster than me!! so I knew I couldn't give up. When I paddled back it was much easier and I just sat on the board and enjoyed the beautiful and calm view... Good for couples and a group of friends but also a great solo experience!

“Nicest People, most beautiful setting, greatest workout!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

Velauno offers the best SUP experience, wether you are a beginner or experienced paddler. They have a privileged location in the Condado Lagoon, a beautiful waterway thats connected to the San Juan marinas and port as well as to th open ocean. Their equipment is A1 and their staff is extremely accommodating and helpful setting you up and guiding you according to your level. This is a must when you visit San Juan!

Velauno knows what they are doing. Their intentions are simply to expand the SUP paddleboard sport to the next level by sharing and creating events to improve the sport in PR. Classes are super fun! They strive to make everyone feel comfortable and happy. Highly recommend it! :)

“Must do experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

If you are looking to try the sport for the first time, or if you are looking to ride like an expert on a raceboard, look no further. Velauno has 2 large vans full of the latest SUP gear. They offer trips in the Condado lagoon. They also organize the biggest competition called PAddle Royal. Velauno has over 20 years of experience in watersports and have always provided great service, support and a super friendly atmosphere.They have evolved to become the #1 store for paddleboarding expertise in the island. Go talk to them and find out for yourself.

“The best paddleboarding!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

Super friendly staff and a very cool gang will assist you when you arrive to the awesome Laguna del Condado. The stand up paddleboarding, when you're in Puerto Rico this is the place to go.
