Activity Highlights:

Take your SUP skills to the beautiful canals of London. This experience is for those with previous paddleboarding experience, or for those who’ve completed a session with us and are ready to navigate the waters independently.

SUP Rental is the perfect way to discover Brentford and the Grand Union Canal at your own pace. A team member will provide the equipment, but the adventure is yours to embark on.

Our peaceful canal location is situated near the convergence of the River Brent and Grand Union Canal. We have access to showers and changing rooms on-site and a new pontoon for canal access. It is the perfect location for those those seeking a mellow SUP experience with minimal boat traffic.

Why Choose Us?

We’ve been immersing people into the world of urban SUP on the Tidal Thames and London’s canals since 2011. Our extensive and diverse team of experienced coaches are passionate about creating memorable experiences for paddlers from all walks of life.

We’re committed to raising awareness about marine environments and their current threats, notably plastic pollution and we strongly encourage paddlers to contribute to protecting our waterways.

Please Note: SUP rental is only for those with SUP experience. For safety, you need to be confident to paddle independently and manoeuvre safely around canal traffic. If you’re unsure of your ability, consider joining one of our coach-led trips which you can find at the bottom of this page.

Important: Maida Hill tunnel on the Regent’s Canal is off-limits due to high regulations.

Frequently Asked Questions

Sorry, no. SUP rental is only for those with SUP experience. For safety, you need to be confident to paddle independently and manoeuvre safely around canal traffic. If you’re unsure of your ability, consider joining one of our coach-led trips which you can find at the bottom of this page. You can hire our kayaks or canoes without any experience – you can also find them at the bottom of this page!

We strongly recommend cycling! It’s the best option for the environment and we are easy to access by bikes with space to lock your bike or store foldable bikes.

Your travel options are:

  • Train: Brentford overground station is a 10 – 15 minute walk to Brentford Lock. There is a regular train service from London Waterloo and from Weybridge.
  • Bus: There are several buses going direct to Commerce Road and also on nearby Brentford High St there are regular busses from Hammersmith  and Hounslow.
  • Cycling: There is secure cycle parking inside a locked area at the venue. You can cycle along the towpath to reach us and we are close to the new mostly segregated cycle route which connects Brentford to Hammersmith.
  • Parking: The closest car park is the Holiday Inn car park, for which you pay an hourly rate. There is also Pay&Display parking at Brentford High Street.

You will receive a booking confirmation and be able to speak to the centre via the online chat.

Before heading out for your SUP session, we recommend you check the weather forecast and dress accordingly, keeping potential wind and rain factors in mind.

Pack These Essentials:

  • Water-appropriate footwear (more details below)
  • Spare clothes and a towel (for post-fall dry-offs or showers)
  • Sun protection items like sunscreen and a sun hat
  • A retainer for your glasses
  • A refillable water bottle
  • A dry bag and waterproof phone case if you plan on bringing items onto the water (we don’t provide dry bags)

What to Wear:

  • For Warmer Days:
    • Choose quick-drying sportswear or gym wear – tops of any sleeve length, leggings, shorts, or quick-drying trousers (avoid denim and heavy cotton as they retain moisture and can make you feel cold)
    • Neoprene water shoes are ideal for footwear, but if unavailable, consider flat-sole trainers, Converse, or hiking sandals with a heel strap – they should stay securely on your feet and be okay to get wet. We advise against flip-flops and barefoot paddling due to potential risks
    • A lightweight windproof/waterproof jacket or an extra top in case you feel cold
    • A spare jumper or throw-on top for post-exercise warmth
  • For Colder Days:
    • A light, windproof/waterproof jacket
    • A thermal top
    • We highly recommend wearing light thermals or wetsuits, with a woolly hat for added warmth (we provide a selection of wetsuits for borrowing). Wearing a bigger wetsuit with a tight-fitting layer underneath, such as a baselayer and leggings, can also be beneficial
    • Footwear is crucial during colder weather – we recommend neoprene shoes or boots, and neoprene socks for very cold conditions
    • Always bring spare clothes and a warm jumper or cosy top for post-exercise warmth

We do not have lockers on site but personal belongings in a bag/rucksack can be left in the equipment cages on site. Make sure you do not leave loose items – it’s best to put them in one or two bags. Shoes can be left on site too. We have never had anything go missing, but please avoid bringing valuables (or take them in a drybag) as the cages are shared by staff and all customers.

We highly recommend cycling to the site. There are cycle stands nearby. Bring a lock with you. Folded Brompton bikes can be left in the equipment cages.

How it works: 

  1. Make a booking.
  2. The centre will accept your booking, usually within an hour or two.
  3. Pay for the booking to confirm it.

If you have specific questions, please put them in the comments section, and the centre will answer before you pay.

If something isn't right or if there are no dates available, then send us a message in the live chat.
