Go Stand Up Paddle Boarding | Heritage Super SUP Tours | £40pp
If the BBC were to do another Coast series, we’re sure they’d be trying our fascinating Heritage Super Stand Up Paddle Boarding tour along Newquay’s historically rich coastline.
Though more commonly known as the birth place of surfing, Newquay actually has an even greater history to tell, smuggling tales that would have even the most experienced of historians on the edge of their seats or… SUP!
Your paddle boarding adventure begins at the Newquay Activity Centre HQ where we’ll kit you out in a top of the range wetsuit, buoyancy aid, helmet and pro paddle, before launching the Super SUP from Newquay bay. What starts as a leisurely paddle boarding tour along Newquay’s beautiful craggy coastline turns into a captivating step back in time. An era when smugglers, pirates and vagabonds used these secret coves and caves, under the cover of darkness, to smuggle contraband and treasures into Cornwall. It’s these same shores that hold the stories of the rise and demise of the once great pilchard industry in Newquay, heroic RNLI rescues in high seas, and old fisherman’s tales from the deep …all to be unravelled on your Heriatge paddle boarding tour.
In addition to becoming a novice maritime historian, you also get to appreciate the abundance of marine, bird and wildlife that grace this coastline. We’ll also moor up for a host of hilariously fun paddle boarding games including Dizzy Stick, King of the SUP and Sumo SUP. You’ll also enjoy a full body workout as you learn to perfect paddle strokes, kneel paddling and catch waves on this giant craft. No fear though, you can take everything at your own pace.
History needn’t be taught in books, instead it should come alive through discovery, and so what better way than exploring this mythical coastline. The Heritage Super paddle boarding tour is therefore ideal for a group of history loving friends, a school trip, scout & guide outing or anyone looking for a little peace, tranquillity and a different experience.
