THE ULTIMATE SUPER SUP EXPERIENCE!

Go head-to-head in a winner takes all paddle race across the turquoise waters of Newquay bay! Test your mental and physical prowess while you race the clock and navigate your way around our ocean course. Anything goes in our fun-filled super SUP races; expect smiles, splashes, sly tactics and speed!

HOW DOES IT WORK?

On arrival at our Newquay Activity Centre HQ, our friendly staff will split you into two teams. They will then kit you out with a warm and comfortable Rip Curl wetsuit, buoyancy aid, helmet and pro paddle before introducing you to our giant-sized stand up paddle board. Once you’re fully equipped with a racing vessel and a ferocious team name, we’ll move down to the ocean where our experienced instructors will go through some fundamentals of SUP surfing. You will learn the basics in launching, effective paddle strokes (on your knees and standing up), SUP steering and control.

Following the waterside tutorial we’ll give each group the opportunity to put the theory into practice with a leisurely paddle & super SUP surf session. You will head out around Newquay’s beautiful Towan headland soaking in the unique views as you go. But enjoy the tranquillity while it lasts …no sooner are you gliding effortlessly past marine life that call these craggy cliffs home, than you are going head to head with your shipmates in a series of silly SUP games! These could include Sumo SUP, King of the SUP, SUP Spinning and Drunken Sailor to name a few.

HEALTHY COMPETITION AND TEAM SPIRIT

Warmed up, soaking wet and having built a strong team spirit, it’s time to make your way to the start line beside your racing rivals on SUP number two. Depending on your preference, you’ll either race your opponent or race the clock. The next few moments will be a blur of physical exertion, laughter and under hand tactics (where your paddles become pugil sticks) as you race around our course marker and back, some 200m out to sea.

Whether you cross the finish line by paddling or sculling your adversary’s SUP, victory can only be awarded with everyone on board. Leave no man behind! Either way, we guarantee giggles galore and a full body work out like no other! Needless to say there can only be one winner, and those deserved victors will walk away with a bottle of bubbly and bragging rights over their fallen friends.
