Join us on a Newquay beginner SUP lesson (tour) in Crantock and enjoy exclusive access to one of the best SUP locations in the county. the Gannel is a beautiful, flat-water tidal estuary which offers perfect paddling conditions in stunningly beautiful surroundings. We are the ONLY centre who can launch straight from Crantock Beach to explore the whole of this amazing estuary.
Our Stand-Up-Paddleboard (SUP) Tours offer so much more than a basic lesson. You\’ll learn the correct techniques from our top instructors whilst seeing the scenery, wildlife and historical features that the Gannel has to offer.
All equipment and tuition included, we go at your pace and can cater for all ages. For a different experience check out our Monster SUP Tours for up to 10 people.
You will need to arrive 15 minutes before your lessons start time, upon arrival you will check in at the welcome desk where you will be greeted and directed to your SUP coach who will provide you with all the equipment you will need.
Once the group is ready your coach will lead you to the water’s edge where you will be given a safety brief, an introduction to the lesson and the basics of paddling. After a short practice on the beach you will head into the water to practice paddling and turning your board whilst on your knees.
Once you can turn the SUP and control where you are going, your coach will show you the best way to get stood up on your board while keeping your balance. Once on your feet you will paddle with the river current practising your technique and taking in the beautiful scenery the Gannel has to offer.
Throughout the Newquay beginner SUP lesson (tour) in Crantock your coach will be giving you pointers to improve your paddling technique, showing all the interesting things to see on the estuary including local historical knowledge and the beautiful scenery this area has to offer.
