Welcome to the world of stand up paddle boarding

Whether you are an athletics enthusiast or a casual adventure fan, you would have heard of the increasingly popular water sport SUP. The SUP abbreviation stands for stand up paddle board or paddle boarding – a combination of surfing and canoeing / kayaking which involves standing on an oversized board and using a canoe-style paddle to move through the water.

Paddle boarding lessons owe their popularity to their suitability for groups, as well as the fact that they offer a great way to enjoy the flatwater and get a full body workout at the same time. SUP is a highly accessible, fun and social way to enjoy sea or inland waters. Almost anyone can do it, whatever your age, skill or fitness level. 

Our stand up paddle boarding Cardiff courses are one of the best places to SUP in Wales. Within just a couple of hours, you will have mastered the basics and our full range of courses cater for all abilities. The beauty of this activity is that it is adaptive and can change to suit your mood and experience. You can simply make as much or as little effort as you want!

As a world-wide sensation water sport SUP is now taking the UK by storm as well, causing a spike in popularity of paddle boarding lessons in South Wales. Read on to find out what stand up paddle boarding lessons Cardiff International White Water has to offer.
