Stand-Up Paddle Boarding in the Forest of Dean

Play at Your Edge and Celebrate Your Falls

I love seeing the joy on student’s faces..

As they try something new, conquer their fears, and learn a new skill.

Stand-Up Paddle Boarding (SUP) is a fun yet challenging practise. SUP is ideal for those looking for an accessible entry into water sports activities. For those looking to reconnect with nature. For those looking to find their tribe of like-minded people. From beginners to advanced paddlers it offers fun, challenge and peace in equal measures. Falling in the water is all part of the fun. The freedom to fall, to embrace what we might see as failing helps us to let go of our expectations and self-judgement.
