Industry-leading eco trained Super SUP instructors
Paddle gracefully and silently below the scenic cliffs of Towan Headland and imagine you’re stepping straight into a nature documentary. Witness the local marine life go about their business, undisturbed by your relaxed and inquisitive presence. With no engine on board, this stealthy ocean craft acts as a first-rate mobile viewing platform from which to view the local wildlife.
SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE
For your Eco Super SUP Tour, we’ll kit you out with a top of the range wetsuit, buoyancy aid, helmet and paddle from the comfort of our heated changing rooms. Once you’re warm and safe, your group will follow one of our guides down to Newquay Bay and help launch this giant craft - all aboard!
We launch and land from two of Newquay’s lush, semi-secret coves. The start to experience is an adventure, as we walk down a rock path to the water’s edge. It’s worth it as the scenery is breath taking, there is some incredible coastal wildlife in the area, and you really are experiencing the best of Newquay’s coastal fringe. We take the walk down to the water slowly, the Super SUP will be waiting in the cove for you.
Our Eco Super SUP Tour has been designed to teach you many core skills including how to launch and land, stand up and balance, hold your paddle, perform basic strokes and how to make directional changes as a team. It’s natural to begin your Eco Super SUP Tour kneeling down on the board, many people do. Our coaches are there to guide you step-by-step in confidently progressing from kneeling to standing, by the end of the lesson you’ll be a pro!
WHAT IS THE ECO SUPER SUP TOUR?
There really isn’t a better way to explore Cornwall’s ecologically rich coastline than on a large inflatable stand up paddleboard! Don’t forget your waterproof camera as inquisitive grey seals and dolphins will, on occasion, get up close and personal to come and say hi! You’ll also paddle past protected coves and secluded caves that provide the perfect habitat for a wealth of native flora, fauna, wildlife, birdlife and sea life.
PERFECT FOR THE ENVIRONMENTALLY MINDED
With such an abundance to see and discover, our unique Eco Super Stand Up Paddleboard Tour is ideal for groups of nature loving friends, school trips and Scout & Guide outings. Conversely, if you’re just looking for something a little different this year - this is a great way to stay fit whilst learning about Newquay’s rich marine habitats.
We’ll lead you through beach safety and fundamental paddle techniques before launching the Eco Super Stand Up Paddle Board from Newquay Bay. We’ll then guide you along Newquay’s beautiful coastline, abundant in marine, bird and wildlife. Our guides are passionate about our coast and trained to teach you all about our local ecosystems.
THIS IS THE ULTIMATE WAY TO ENJOY OUR COASTLINE!
In addition to becoming an ‘apprentice marine biologist’ you’ll also get the opportunity to have some fun on the open seas. You will be invited to take part in a host of games that will up-skill your technique in preparation for the tour. The Eco Super SUP experience offers an unbeatable balance of education, fun, learning and just the right amount of adrenaline.

With safety at the forefront of our lessons, we must advise that children under the age of 8 are welcome to Super SUP with us but they should be accompanied by an adult and join a Private or Family Super SUP tour. Alternatively, they must have an adult waiting for them at the beach during the session.
WHAT HAPPENS IF THERE IS EXTREME WEATHER?
We are super fortunate to operate many of our activities within the shelter of Towan beach. We choose the tide and weather times that deliver the very best conditions for Super Stand Up Paddleboard Tours. However, we are at the mercy of Mother Nature and sometimes she may have different plans for us. We always check the forecasted conditions but if the wind or swell picks up unexpectedly, we may need to change the time or location of your tour. Alternatively, we can move your booking onto a different activity, safe from unsuitable or dangerous SUP conditions.
Over 95% of our tours go ahead unaffected by the weather but, in the unlikely event that this does happen, we have excellent back-up options for you to choose from. If we need to amend your stand up paddle board booking due to adverse weather, we will let you know in advance. (No need to call us). We appreciate your understanding.
