SamSurf receives subsidies

SamSurf has been lucky enough to receive financial support from European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and thus the dream of starting a Stand Up Paddle rental service and SUP school on Samsø becomes a reality! 

SamSurf aims to to make the water sport Stand up Paddle (SUP) easily accessible to Samsø's local population and tourists via the rental of SUP equipment and courses that focus on technique and safety at sea. The project contributes with a new and fun holiday activity and a health-promoting sport close to nature which is practiced alone together with others.

The result is a tourist attraction that sharpens people's attention to the use of Samsø's coastline. It can and should be used for other purposes than sunbathing and walking, and the project will convey knowledge about wind and weather and about safety at sea for the benefit of the island's many thousands of visitors, but to a large extent also for the island's local population.
