What's SUP?

SUP is short for Stand Up Paddleboard. Stand-Up Paddleboarding is a water sport borne from surfing, with modern roots in the United States. Stand up paddleboarders stand on boards that are floating on the water, and use a paddle to propel themselves through the water. It's arguabliy easier than surfing, more relaxing than kayaking and can be picked up at your pace

Learn to Paddleboard

We can tailor an introductory one-to-one lesson or small group session to get you on the water and hopefully on to your feet in your first session, so you can confidently enjoy your SUP adventures pretty quickly, We often explore the South West on SUP adventures and can provide lessons across Somerset, Devon and Cornwall.
