Stand up paddleboard lessons

BEGINNER TASTER SESSIONS

Stand up paddleboarding is one of the fastest growing outdoor sports in the UK. Our 2 hour SUP taster sessions are perfect if you have very little or no experience of the sport. Your first lesson will take place either on Fistral Beach, Fistral Headland or The River Gannel depending on sea and tide conditions. You will be introduced to your equipment and the environment and how conditions will affect your paddle session. Basic paddle techniques and board control will be taught alongside beach and sea safety. All equipment is provided including full wetsuit, SUP, paddle, buoyancy aid and helmet, you only need to bring swimwear and a towel.

We are based less than 100 metres from the South end of Fistral Beach, which means less-crowded, learner-perfect waves.
