Stand Up Paddleboarding
Although we require minimal ability to hire SUP boards, SUPing itself is restricted to light wind conditions. Please call the club (01784 248881) to ensure we are permitting SUPing before coming down.
If you are a competent windsurfer or sailor it's a great way to see the club and get a taste of what membership would be like.
