Stand up paddling boarding lessons and tours are a great way to get outdoors and enjoy the breathtaking beauty of Cornwall. It is also a fun, year round activity that the whole family can enjoy. Once mastered, gliding through the water on a paddle board can be a deeply relaxing experience and this may explain why it has become so popular over the last few years.
Breakers Surf School offer tuition and guided tours around the area of outstanding natural beauty and heritage coast of St. Agnes. Although Trevaunace Cove in St Agnes is our favourite place to SUP we also offer sessions in others areas of Cornwall including Falmouth, Marizion (home of St. Michaels Mount,) the Roseland peninsula the many rivers and estuaries in and around Cornwall.
We offer a stand up paddle board lesson which takes place in the more sheltered area of the beach. We also offer a longer guided tour which takes us a little more off the beaten track for those who are already confident paddleboarders.
Please call us to discuss your needs. We may also be able to offer sessions on days and times not already on our main calendar on request.
PLEASE NOTE: You must be a competent swimmer to book in for both the lesson and the tour. Minimum age of 10 for this activity. Under 16s need to be accompanied by an adult at a ratio of 1 adult to children.
