Welcome to SWSUP Social, where we believe in sharing unforgettable experiences on the water with amazing people like you. Whether you’re a seasoned paddler or just falling in love to the sport, our social paddles are open to all who share our passion for paddling, people, and the ocean.

Our qualified and experienced instructors lead club paddles up to 4 days a week during the spring and summer season. Each paddle is 1 hour long and provides the perfect opportunity to explore the beautiful waters of our region. We’ve got all the gear you need and the expertise to guide you, so all you need to bring is your positive attitude!

With no membership fees or monthly subscriptions, it’s easy to join in on the fun with our pay-as-you-go option or discounted class passes. And if you’re concerned about keeping up or feeling confident enough, don’t worry – simply book a SUP Experience lesson or improver lesson with us first and our instructors will get you up to speed in no time.

To participate in our social SUP sessions, we do recommend some prior paddling experience, such as having taken a lesson with us or having paddled with friends. We expect paddlers to be able to stand and paddle at the gentle speed without falling off and can self-recue. Additionally, participants should have good general physical fitness and be a confident swimmer.

Join us on the water and experience the thrill of social SUP paddling with Club SWSUP!

Tuesdays: 18:00 – 19:00

Thursdays: 0700 – 0800

Welcome to our SUP Yoga page, where you’ll learn about a unique and transformative way to practice yoga. Our SUP Yoga sessions provide the perfect opportunity to combine your love of yoga and paddle boarding with your passion for nature and adventure.

By practicing yoga on a stand-up paddleboard, you’ll not only improve your core strength but also experience a deep connection with nature. The gentle movements and the challenge of maintaining balance on the water will enhance your coordination, balance, and core strength. Whether you’re a seasoned yogi or a beginner, our SUP Yoga sessions offer a beautiful new pathway for your practice.

During our SUP Yoga sessions, you’ll be guided by our experienced and qualified yoga instructor, who will ensure that you feel safe and comfortable on the water. We provide all the necessary equipment, including safety equipment, to make sure that you have an enjoyable experience.

In addition to the physical benefits, practising yoga on a paddleboard offers a unique opportunity to calm and soothe your mind. The beauty of the natural elements and the meditative quality of being on the water can help you to feel truly present in the moment.

After your session, you can enjoy a complimentary hot drink from The Shack, our on-site café.
