Bespoke SUP session


If you want a private lesson, tailored to your group, we offer a bespoke package. Not only an individualised session but also a smaller group. Minimum booking of 2 people with reduced rates for groups of 4 and additional discount for groups of 6.

All equipment provided including wetsuit, wetsuit boots and buoyancy aid if required. Our fully qualified instructors will cover Stand-up Paddle Boarding safety and essential techniques in detail on dry land.

We will select the best paddling location, get you standing and offer individualised coaching to develop your paddling techniques.

Depending on your level of confidence, the session will include a short coastal journey to explore the stunning surroundings of Firestone Bay including Royal William Yard, Drake's Island and Plymouth Hoe.

We look forward to sharing a SUP adventure with you!
