Frequently Asked Questions

What is a SUP?

SUP stands for Stand Up Paddle Board. It is a non powered watercraft a lot like a surfboard, just bigger. You stand on a SUP and gently manoeuvre around at your own pace.

Do I need to know how to swim?

No you do not need to know how to swim. If you fall into the water you will be wearing a life jacket and you will be very close to your board making it quick and easy to climb back on.

Will I get wet?

I will be honest with you… even the best of us occasionally fall into the water and this is half the fun. Mostly you will stay dry as it is very easy to learn and keep your balance.

Can I ride a SUP if I have never done it before?

Yes absolutely, Stand Up Paddle Boarding is for the professional daily SUP users all the way down to the complete beginners who want to try something new and have some fun…even kids.
