Learn to Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP) and raise money for charity

Stand Up Paddle Boarding, also known as SUP, is a fast growing sport that is easy for almost anyone to get involved in. A great way to get outdoors, get fit, have fun, do something adventurous, and see the World from a different angle!

Want to learning all of the skills you need to start your own SUP adventures?

We’ll be running a number of introductory paddle boarding sessions in conjunction with South Wales SUP club and Puravida Boardriders to help raise money for the following charities;

  • Mind the mental health charity
  • The Search and Rescue Dogs Association in Wales (SARDA Wales)
  • Keep Wales Tidy

At Fit for Adventure, we’re all about encouraging people to benefit from outdoor adventure, whilst raising money for charity. South Wales SUP club have kindly agreed to deliver a number of introductory SUP sessions at a discounted price (usual price £45pp), AND 25% of the price you pay will be donated to the charities named above! WOW!

So you can learn to SUP for yourself, and do a good deed for charity at the same time!!

Who’s it for?

The sessions will be suitable for complete beginners. The WSA qualified SUP coaches at South Wales SUP club pride themselves on getting everyone up and riding by the end of the session!

You will learn essential safety information, how to get the most out of the equipment and the core skills to get you up paddling efficiently and in control. This will then allow you to rent (or buy) kit, and go out paddling at your leisure. It also gives you access to SUP clubs and paddle groups.

Sessions will be limited to a maximum of 10 people.

Please note: participants must be 16+ years to take part.

How long is the course and what kit is included?

Sessions will last 2 hours, and included in the course is equipment hire of board, leash, buoyancy aid and paddle.

Where is it?

We will meet 10 minutes before the start time, outside Compass Coffee – located at Penarth Marina. We have access to toilets, showers, and changing rooms facilities at the marina.

What do you need to bring/ wear?

  • A pair of old trainers or wetsuit shoes/boots
  • High Wicking Gym wear is ideal if its warmer, or just a pair of shorts/board shorts and a t shirt/rash vest/gym top
  • A short wetsuit if it’s colder but you will get really hot when paddling so heavier clothing to the above is fine.
  • Towel and toiletries if you wish to shower later
  • Bottle of water
