GROUP SUP XL ADVENTURES

SUP XL ADVENTURES are ideal for junior, family or household groups. We have two sizes of Red Paddle large Stand up Paddle boards: 14ft (L) holding up to 4 adults or up to 5 person family (2 adults + 3 kids) and 17ft (XL) that can hold 6-8 adult or 8-10 people with mixed age (family or group of young adults).

Our guided adventures along Dunbars beautiful coastline cover everything you need to learn including safety, paddle technique and how to control your board in prone, kneeling and standing positions. We also throw in lots of fun games and challenges.

Our instructor will be on board with children only groups for safety and directional control. For adults or family groups our instructors will act as guide and safety from a separate individual paddle board for adult or mixed age groups. All adventures take place on top of the range paddle boards and our wetsuits will keep you warm whatever the weather. Younger children (7-10yrs ) can take part but must be able to swim 50m and be supervised by a guardian adult on board or by our staff if on a child only board.

We try to schedule SUP classes with the best tides and when weather conditions are good and the coast is calm. We also offer alternative sports should conditions be too difficult on the day.

Availability : SUP XL classes take place May to August – We have limited dates available to book online but can offer private classes for families, households or junior groups, so if you don’t see availability just email us.
