Stand up Paddle boarding
Stand up paddleboarding is quite simply the fastest growing watersport in the world over the last few years and until you give it a go you may stuggle to understand why. Flat water SUP is very accessible to anyone. The boards come in different sizes and widths to suit any size rider. We use long, wide boards as they are great for beginners on flat water,
these boards glide through the water smoothly (less wind the better) giving a stable comfortable ride thats extremely enjoyable. Standing up means you see alot more, paddling and looking down you can see through the water (fish, seaweed, crabs, bottom etc.) as well as around.
