If you are looking for a tranquil way to explore the beautiful UK coastline and you love playing around in the water, then look no further than the increasingly popular sport of stand-up paddle boarding (SUP).
The sport is perfect for those wanting to exercise and enjoy their surroundings at the same time. For that ‘walking on water’ experience there are a whole range of different options and packages to make the most of and you don’t even have to visit the coast to enjoy it, as SUP can also be done on more urban waterways.
Our paddleboard hire service starts from £15 an hour. You can also arrange private lessons, or alternatively you can book for a family or group. Boards can be hired along with good quality wet suits and life jackets. All you need is a swimsuit and a towel and providing the weather conditions are safe enough for stand-up paddle boarding, you are good to go.
For the more nervous among you, you can start by paddle boarding on your knees, progressing to standing once you gain more confidence. Some enthusiasts even practice yoga whilst paddle boarding.
To try out this great sport you should ideally be a confident swimmer and should always heed any warnings given by instructors and life guards regarding weather conditions and tides.
