Dressed up in warm wetsuits, buoyancy aids, helmets, and rash vests, you will ride on the magnificent Super SUP, led by our industry-leading Heritage SUP instructors. Our team is here to make you comfortable, ensuring you learn to stand and balance through fun Super SUP games and coastal navigation.

Newquay may be famous for surfing, but it hides even richer stories and legends. Our Heritage Super SUP Tour is a true adventure through history, visiting fascinating coastal locations filled with seafaring pirates and swashbuckling smuggles from the 1700s. The salty sea breeze and breathtaking views will take you back 300 years, letting you imagine the world that once was.

We’ll launch from one of Newquay’s semi-secret coves, slowly walking down a rock path, captivated by breathtaking scenery. Waiting in the cove will be the Super SUP, ready for your expedition to explore the rise and fall of the pilchard industry, heroic RNLI rescues, tales of old fishermen and facts about the biggest waves ever ridden at the Cribbar reef.

Whether you are a history lover or just looking for a peaceful escape, our Heritage Super Stand Up Paddle Boarding tour is perfect. Our expert coaches will guide you step-by-step, ensuring you progress from kneeling to standing like a pro!

Frequently Asked Questions

Super SUP (Super Stand Up Paddleboarding) in Newquay is riding the wave of popularity as one of the UK’s freshest and rapidly expanding water sports, and it’s proudly part of our thrilling activity lineup at our centre!

We’ve introduced a fleet of grand, inflatable paddleboards that can accommodate groups of up to 8, creating a unique way to explore Newquay’s storied coastline. Setting off from the Gazzle on Fistral Headland, you’ll navigate your craft into hidden smugglers’ caves, traverse natural rapids, and circle around whirlpools, all while mastering the balance and steering of the vessel.

This engaging activity is a hit with participants of all ages and fitness levels, serving not only as an exciting adventure but also as an excellent diving platform and observation deck for peering at the aquatic life beneath the waves.

After getting kitted up at our centre, you and your group will launch the craft from the safety of Towan Beach and navigate it along our craggy coastline, into deep smugglers caves and through the natural whirlpools. The area is steeped in history and heritage.

Having learnt core paddle strokes and skills, you’ll moor up for a variety of hilarious games including SUMO SUP, King of the SUP or Mega SUP races, before navigating ocean swells.

The Gazzle’s caves and craggy coastline are home to an abundance of wildlife, from our native seals that call the coves home to jellyfish under the water’s surface. During your SUP experience, you’ll learn how to identify the flora and fauna of Newquay’s coastal ecosystems and witness them up close from the SUP itself.

All our Instructors are fully qualified Beach and Surf Safety Lifeguards, ISA awarded surf instructors and experienced coasteer leaders. They’ve undertaken extensive First Aid training and we endeavour as an Activity Centre to regularly in-house train our staff so they have experience in all weather and water conditions. Every instructor must have years of personal experience in the water and we also work in close partnership with the RNLI to ensure your safety in and out of the water.

SUP paddling requires a basic level of fitness and it certainly gets the heart pumping, but you don’t have to be an athlete! The beauty is that you can rest if you need a break.

We ask that everybody who takes part in our SUP experiences can swim a minimum of 50 metres. However, you’ll be provided with a buoyancy aid at the start of your session, meaning you always have a floatation aid throughout your SUP experience.

Yes! During the winter you’ll be provided with some extra kit to help keep you warm on colder days – a wetsuit hood, neoprene gloves & neoprene boots!
