Learn to Paddleboard in Cornwall.

We have been running our SUP (aka stand up paddleboard) lessons since 2008 and it is still one of our most popular activities. We time our lessons mainly around the high tide so we have use of the Camel estuary in Padstow – a perfect place to learn new skills or take a SUP tour. We may run lessons from Harlyn bay only when the conditions allow for it. We may change the location of the SUP session a day prior but we will contact you to let you know. If you don’t here from us please assume Padstow, Porthilly view PL28 8DH.

During your paddleboard Intro session you will learn essential skills such as water safety, fall and retrieve, knee paddling and of course learning how to stand up. We will also cover some basic turning skills and equipment knowledge. If you have paddled before and can stand up why not consider one of our SUP tours?



The Paddleboard session times vary due to the tides. We have pre-selected days to suit this please check our availability online. If a session is not available please contact us as we may be able to add more sessions. Lessons last for 1.5hr

Our min age is 12yrs or min hight 5ft. Our sessions are popular with teens and adults but if you have younger children our Family SUP sessions maybe better suited for you. Contact us to discuss.


The forecast can change very quickly – we keep our eye on the weather like a hawk! Strong winds can affect our teaching environment but we can still paddle in sheltered water even if the wind is blowing!  We will only contact customers a day before IF we have concerns about the weather forecast.
