Stand up paddle boarding (SUP) is an excellent way to explore the creeks and harbours you visit, reaching into those smaller parts that you can’t necessarily access by boat.It’s a great activity for all the family to enjoy across the Solent. It is quiet, peaceful, doesn’t disturb the birdlife or wildlife and is great exercise too. We are extremely happy to share the news that SUP’s are now available to hire through Boat Club Trafalgar by simply adding them on to your boat reservations! For just £35 per hire you can now request SUP’s at the point of your boat booking, either through the APP or by phone. Upon arrival here at Trafalgar Wharf, you will find the Paddleboard and everything else you need ready and waiting on the boat for you. Simple.
The hire cost covers everything needed to get afloat including the board itself, paddles & buoyancy aids. Depending on the boat style that you are out to play on, the SUP’s will be provided either pre-inflated or in the bag along with a pump.
If you haven’t paddle boarded before or have very little experience, we would strongly recommend you take part in a SUP skills workshop before you head out for some fun.
The quickest and most efficient way to learn and progress with Paddleboarding is with professional coaching by a qualified instructor.
We have several workshops coming up over the coming months right here at Trafalgar Wharf in collaboration with the wonderful Paddlesup Company. These 2-hour sessions will provide a variety of tips and tricks to help you feel confident in your ability to paddle forwards, stop, turn, and stand comfortably.
