SUP Heritage Stand Up Paddle Boarding

History and heritage

Despite being sheltered, the Gazzle’s caves and crags are notoriously named. Dead Man’s cove and Witches Peak earned their titles for a reason and it’s these stories that bring a new dimension to our dramatic local history. Our’s is a coastline steeped in history and of smugglers, lifeboat rescues and shipwrecks!

With a wetsuit, buoyancy aid, helmet, paddle and expert instructor you will launch your board from Towan beach and paddle the same hidden routes that pirates took whilst smuggling brandy, tea and gin.

Stunning scenery

The deck of your stand up paddleboard is the perfect way to view our coastlines! Not only is the scenery stunning, you’ll get close enough to touch the cliffs and take charge of the route for the ultimate tailored adventure. It’ll be hard to believe the dramatic tales shared by our instructors.

Native wildlife

An abundance of native flora and fauna call this coastline home. You’re guaranteed to see a range of local wildlife that inhabit Newquay’s marine environment. Keep your eyes peeled for nosey seals popping up beside your board!
