Rowing in a “trainera” is very easy. If you do not agree, come and try it. Arrauning is the first company that offers rowing in “traineras” as a leisure activity. We all know the “traineras” in the Basque Country, … but, who has ever rowed? Arrauning offers tours in the Urumea, and now, also in La Concha Bay. With us, you will feel one more of this rowing family. Paddling is easy. Rowing fast and well, that’s a bit more complicated … but paddling, it’s very easy. It does not need any special coordination.
In a single minute, we get the boat to navigate. To perform this activity, a group of 8-11 people is necessary. An Arrauning instructor will be the “trainera´s” patron. No other sport offers the experience and the sensation that comes from rowing. Rowing is the only sport in which, to go forward, you have to look back. And that creates a unique feeling. The clothes to participate in this activity should be comfortable. The boat is impossible to overturn. Believe us, even if you try, you will not get it! It is a safe boat, and the person in charge of steering of Arrauning will always remain on board with you. Arrauning is a unique experience. You will feel something special, and you will feel very special.

Paddle surfing, stand-up paddleboarding, stand-up paddle surfing, or its initials SUP, is a form of gliding in which the person uses an oar to move through the water while standing in a big surf board. This discipline has its origin in the roots of the Polynesian peoples. In Hawaiian language it is called Hoe He’e NALU; Stand up, paddle, glide a wave.
The most recent history dates back to the 1960s, when surf instructors on Waikiki Beach used their huge longboards and rudimentary canoe paddles to take pictures of their students. It also allowed them to have a better visibility of their group and to give notice of the arrival of the waves in an easy way.
In the early 2000s, Hawaiian surfers like Dave Kalama, Brian Keaulana, Archie Kalepa and Laird Hamilton began paddling as an alternate form of training. This new variant of surfing allowed them to train and go to the water without waves or wind, and at the same time run the most gigantic waves in the world.
Over the years they found themselves participating in events such as the Molokai Paddle board Race Oahu and Buffalo´s Big Board Surfing Classic.
One difference between the modern idea of surfing and SUP is that the latter does not need a wave. In this new sport you can row in the open sea, in ports, in lakes, rivers or any large body of water.
