Fancy trying something new? We're very pleased to reveal an exciting new edition to the awesome activities on offer at Vobster - Stand Up Paddleboarding.
In partnership with the good folk at Adventure SUP, we now offer visitors to Vobster Quay the chance to try this exciting sport for themselves. Under the watchful eye of an experienced Adventure SUP instructor, the 'Ready to Ride' 90-minute course will give you the best possible start in your SUP adventure!
During the 'Ready to Ride' course, you'll learn all the essential skills and knowledge you need to get to grips with SUP boarding. You'll learn about the paddleboard and paddle, giving you the knowledge to make educated buying decisions (should you wish to take the sport further). You will move from kneeling on the board to standing up. You'll learn paddle strokes, turns, tricks, have a few games and - if time allows - you can try out a SUP rescue technique!
You don't need to own your own board to take part - the £35 course fee includes use of all equipment, life preserver and wetsuit (if you don't own your own). SUP training is open to anyone 12 years or above.
Ready to start your SUP Adventure?
Stand Up Paddleboarding Sessions run three times a day at weekends only and must be booked in advance through the Adventure SUP website. Book your place now by following this link...

The road to IANTD CCR instructor is long and arduous, but when well earned, qualification is celebrated by everyone. Howard 'Hugo' Angel has achieved this pinnacle after a long apprenticeship, in depth knowledge, 100 hours of redBare diving and in excess of 20 evaluated course assist hours. Howard has demonstrated his knowledge with academic, practical and diving tasks, plus completing maintenance and servicing challenges at VMS HQ. #iantduk #redbareccr #vmsrebreathers
