What is SUP ?

Stand Up PaddleBoarding or “SUP” is one of the fastest growing water sports. Paddleboarding is safe, fun and accessible to everyone, and with a little instruction your technique and progress will be vastly improved. SUP is a great way to get outside, breathe in the fresh air, explore the waterways and enjoy the tranquil beauty of West Sussex. Safety is of paramount importance to us, yourself and other water users, so our beginner sessions take place on the safe, sheltered waters of  Chichester Canal ,  this provides us with the ideal teaching environment to learn new skills and progress quickly.

What do I wear / need to bring?

We provide everything that you will need for your session. We have a full range of summer, winter, full suits and shortie O’ Neill wetsuits to suit all ages and sizes, from age 6 to adult XXL, as well as a huge range of wetsuit shoes, rash vests and Palm buoyancy aids. All equipment and tuition is included in our lessons, so all you need to bring is yourself, swimwear for under a wetsuit, a towel and a sense of humour. If the weather is too warm  for wetsuits, we would suggest that you wear swim shorts and wear one of our rash vests on your top half.

Our location on the Chichester Canal provides ideal flat water, uncrowded, sheltered conditions to learn without having to contend with other water users, tides, waves and wind. Our customers span a range of ages from 6 – 80 and we will always aim to cater for any additional needs where possible. We have experience of teaching customers of all ages and abilities and are able to provide additional assistance for customers who may be more nervous about trying a new sport.
