6. MANDURAH STAND UP PADDLE HIRE
Mandurah SUP Hire allows people of most ages to enjoy the fun of "Stand Up Paddling" and you do not have to spend a huge amount to do this or buy a proper board.
You can enjoy this with your children (as per the photo below) and do it all alone - either way, SUP can provide great fun and excitement by catching waves.
It is also a great experience in calmer, smooth waters as you can move about in a slow and casual manner, enjoying the sights Mandurah has to offer.
Hire options are subject to suitable weather conditions, which at this time of year are generally perfect for this type of sport.
Board hire rates are $25 per hour or $15 for 15 minutes, and if you are a senior, there is a 10% discount for paddles and all safety equipment included. So, seniors, give it a go with your grandchildren!
