It’s popular with all ages and a great workout to develop fitness and core strength. We provide all the equipment required for your SUP lesson including wetsuits if required. We also offer longer trips along the beautiful River Severn, packages for parties, stag & hen doos or you can create your own personal bespoke adventure.
