STAND UP PADDLE XL

Stand Up Paddle XL is an awesome activity, offering a fantastic group experience on a giant 17ft board!

We offer team races, small wave surfing, group tours along the coast and a wide range of fun team games. All participants will go through an in-depth on beach demonstration of good paddle technique and safe use of the board. Instructors will act as safety and a guide from a separate single SUP board due to social distancing. All participants must be able to swim competently 50m.

SUP XL boards will be offered for private family or “social bubble” only initially although we hope when government advice allows to offer this fun coastal activity to all. We have a low number of suggested times that are over high tide offering a short walk to the water front from the centre. Other times will be available so just get in touch if this does not suit.

BOOKING OF THIS PRODUCT WILL RETURN ONLINE ON 1st of JUNE 2020. SORRY FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE. WE ARE CURRENTLY REDESIGNING OUR BOOKING PROCESS FOR CV19 TO ALLOW FOR SMALLER GROUPS, SPACING OF LESSONS AND COURSES AND NON CONTACT PROCEDURES.
