Split into teams, your Newquay Suoer SUP tour will get crazily competitive as you complete this whacky race. It’s a two-horse comical SUP surf race between the stags or hens (up to 8 on each vessel) where the victors get a champagne podium finish and ultimate bragging rights over the losers.
On arrival at the Newquay Activity Centre you’ll be split into teams, kitted out with a wetsuit, buoyancy aid, helmet and pro SUP surf paddle and left to muster up a winning team name. Once tribal associations have been made our experienced instructors will talk you through and have you practice a series of SUP surf techniques: launching, effective paddle strokes, SUP steering & control, and kneel paddling.
Following the waterside tutorial we’ll give each group the opportunity to put the theory into practice with a leisurely paddle & SUP swell negotiation around Newquay’s beautiful Towan headland. But enjoy the tranquillity while it lasts …no sooner are you gliding effortlessly past marine life that make these craggy cliffs their home, than you’re going head to head with your shipmates in a series of silly SUP games (Sumo SUP, King of the SUP, SUP surfing and Drunken Sailor).
Warmed up, soaking wet and having built a strong team spirit, it’s time to make your way to the start line up alongside your competition on SUP number two. 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. 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.
Once you’ve nailed the fundamentals, each team will be given an opportunity to hone their sea going SUP skills on a tour of Newquay’s Gazzle peninsula. To build up the adrenaline, competitive spirit and camaraderie each craft will then play a series of hilariously fun SUP games (Sumo SUP, Queen of the SUP and Drunken Sailor).
Once the blood is flowing and competitive spirit high we’ll line you up for the ultimate challenge: the 200 metre SUP surf sprint paddle to a buoy and back, where the victors walk away with a deserved bottle of bubbly and an enormous amount of pride. But beware, we’re in the land of pirates, so ocean skulduggery and underhand tactics are encouraged as you race toward the finish line using your paddles as pugil sticks and buoyancy aids as body armour. But remember, the super SUP can only continue once everyone is on board, making this activity a complete test of brains, balance bravery and brawn. May only the best stags or hens win!
