Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) is the fastest growing water sport in the world as it's so easy to learn to do! It's is a great fun outdoor activity for all the family and a great laugh for a group of friends!
Even if you've never been on the water before it's not a problem - our boards are so stable that most people are standing within fifteen minutes!
Almost anyone can Stand Up Paddleboard. We cater for ages 8 - 80+ and all abilities. You don't need to be fit to SUP and you don't need to be able to swim far as you will wear a bouyancy aid so, if you can tie your shoelaces and walk to the shops, then we can teach you to stand up paddleboard!
You won't get cold when the sun isn't shining and we paddle all year round! You don't have to be tough to get in the water as the wetsuits we use are surf quality 5mm thick winter wetsuits. They are designed to keep you warm when surfing IN the water for two hours in the middle of winter so they WILL keep you warm even if you fall in. If you haven't worn a good wetsuit before you won't believe how good they are and lot's of our students actually ask us if they can get in the water for a swim to cool down half way through a session! We have sizes age 6 - 16 in juniors, 6 -18 in ladies and S - XXXL in mens wetsuits.
We are based at Merioneth Yacht Club in Barmouth Harbour so you can use the club's changing rooms, showers and toilets as well as the club bar over-looking the harbour where anyone not taking part can sit and enjoy a cup of tea and watch all the action.
Whether you're a complete beginner looking for your first taste of SUP or an experienced paddler wanting to learn about the tides and currents in Barmouth before setting out on your own, we have a variety of stand up paddleboarding experiences available to suit everyone.
We can accommodate large groups so it's a great outdoor activity for schools, corporate groups and stag and hen parties.
