Stand-up Paddleboards, or SUPs, are taking the world by storm – from flat water cruising, to great fun for all levels of surfers on small to medium waves, to overhead waves for experienced surfers, these boards are a great way to get out and enjoy the water in a whole new way.

With boards and paddles for all sizes and shapes of rider, stand-up paddleboarding offers something for everyone. Light enough to carry on your own, but big enough to be super stable and bouyant enough to make catching waves as easy as falling off a log.

If you’ve never had a go on a SUP, drop into the shop to arrange a demo.


$20 per hour
board, paddle, leash and PFD supplied
