Stand up paddle boarding is such a fun and social with friends and family, its a perfect for a day out in wonderful North Wales. This is a popular activity and you don't require any previous boarding or canoeing experience to pick it up!

Join us for a 2hr beginner SUP session to learn the basics from kneeling and to finally stand up paddle boarding (SUP). Once you have completed this session, you are able to join on other activities such as night paddleboarding, mini SUP safari around the stunning coastline of Anglesey. For people who are keen to develop paddling skills from this session, it is recommended to book onto a SUP Improver.

This is such a great social sport, all within a stunning location with a back drop of Snowdon. You will be truly hooked after your session with us!

“I did the 2 hour Beginner to SUP today. What a wonderful experience. Sian is such a good teacher, very experienced and very patient. It was lots of fun and the kit you use is really good with the added bonus of a beautiful setting in Llyn Padarn. Will definitely be back in the near future. Loved it”
