What is stand up paddle boarding?

The main thing that makes this different to surfing is the fact that you stand on the board and have a paddle to propel yourself along the coast. Stand up Paddle Boarding is often shortened to SUP as it makes it easier to say. The boards are generally much bigger than a surfboard, ranging from 8ft in length! SUP has taken off around the world since it started to hit the media in 2003. So what are you waiting for? Book your Sup adventure today with Outer Reef Surf & Sup School and find out about this awesome sport.

Why SUP?

If you have only just heard of this new craze or if you have been thinking of trying it for a while then don’t delay…come on down and have a play. Paddle Boarding is great fun and is fast to pick up. If the sea has run out of waves then this is perfect for an adventure along the Pembrokeshire coast. At Outer Reef we aim to make sure you feel at home on your board within the first session and you will undoubtedly get a unique view of Wales’ coastline!

Why SUP with us?

We are passionate and enthusiastic about what we do. We take the time to make sure that although you are within a group environment everyone gets individual attention. And if you need it we can make a bespoke Paddle Boarding experience just for you or your group.

How we rock?

You will meet a member of our SUP coaching team at the beach or harbour. From there they will take the time to find out if you have paddled before and what we are planning to get up to in the session. 
Our SUP adventures will be broken down into a few parts; learning a few skills, then getting out and about on the Pembrokeshire coast. The most important thing we will do is have some serious fun! 
You will have a member of our team there alongside you, to help you get going and improve your technique. 
With an intimate knowledge of the Pembrokeshire coast, your coach will guide you on an unforgettable adventure.

What about kit?

So if you fancy having a bit of a paddle about we have everything you need! We have full wetsuits,  paddle boards and of course some paddles. Our SUP coaches always carry a first aid kit in a bag so if you need to take anything with you this is no problem. The only thing you will need is your swimwear, a towel and maybe some sunscreen!

Paddle Boarding locations?

We use many locations on the beautiful Pembrokeshire coast. We will generally start off in Stack Pole harbour to get your skills up and then go out and explore the Welsh coast. If you have been out before with us, we could start from a beach instead (weather conditions allowing). This activity is controlled by what the wind,swell and tide is up to. Most Paddleboarding tours start at StackPole then we head along the south Pembrokeshire coast, exploring hudden caves and beaches.
