Stand up paddleboarding is quite simply the fastest growing watersport in the world over the last few years and until you give it a go you may stuggle to understand why. Why stand on a massive surfboard and paddle it around? Flat water SUP is very accessible to anyone. The boards come in different sizes and widths to suit any size rider. We use long, wide boards as they are great for beginners on flat water, these boards glide through the water smoothly (less wind the better) giving a stable comfortable ride thats extremely enjoyable. Standing up means you see alot more, paddling and looking down you can see through the water (fish, seaweed, crabs, bottom etc.) as well as around.
We will provide you with all the necessary equipment including stand up paddle boards, paddles, wetsuits, buoyancy aids and safety equipment. All you need to bring is a towel, swimming togs/shorts, an old pair of shoes you don’t mind getting wet and a sense of adventure.
The primary location will be in Cleggan but we have located a few different areas in Connemara that we think will be perfect for learning how to SUP. As SUP is way more enjoyable in calm conditions if Bundouglas isn’t suitable on the day we will bring to one of the other locations we have scouted.
