This unforgettable experience is action packed, adrenaline filled and perfect for families of all ages. The Super SUP private experience is our latest and greatest in boredom-busting family fun. From the comfort of our heated changing rooms, you and your family will be kitted out with top of the range Rip Curl wetsuits, buoyancy aids, helmets and paddles.

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.

Once you’re feeling warm and safe, you will join one of our experienced instructors to paddle this giant craft around our breath-taking Cornish coastline. Along the way you’ll take in secret coves, smugglers’ tunnels and interesting marine life that call these craggy cliffs home.

After some exploration, you’ll drop anchor and play a range of hilarious family-friendly games (King of the SUP, Sumo SUP, Drunken Sailor and SUP racing) before throwing any family feuds to one side and working together to paddle along the coast as a team.


Our Family Super SUP Tours are for families and groups of all skill levels, ages and abilities. You don’t need to have any prior experience; our highly qualified instructors are masters in teaching people from all walks of life.


In addition to sure-fire laughter and exploration, our Family Super SUP Tours offer a balance of physical activity, team spiritedness and education. By the end of the session you and your family will have learnt how to kneel and stand up paddle as a team, safely navigating the Newquay coast together.

You will also have the opportunity to identify local marine life such as crabs, seals, seabirds and dolphins. Our expert team of qualified instructors instil ocean safety lessons and will ignite a healthy interest and appreciation in the ocean and its environment. This is an enjoyable and fun way of introducing children to the buzz of ocean life.

While well known big wave surfers like Jamie O’Brien made the SUPsquatch or Monster SUP famous by catching huge waves in Hawaii, it was NAC who pioneered the craft for touring.

There was no such thing as a Super SUP tour, it was NAC’s brainchild. We even came up with the name Super SUP!

After launching the company in 1996, we have catered for over 200,000 guest experiences. It is guest feedback that helped us to create our Super SUP tours, Super SUP Coasteers, Super SUP snorkel tours and other bespoke experiences. We’re simply re creating what we have spent our lives doing on the Newquay coastline. Director Rob Barber shared his experiences of cave exploration, lagoon snorkelling and sluice ride paddling and the thousands of 5 star trip advisors have been the result.

Having pioneered the development of the Super SUP tour as an activity, and introducing it to the coastal activity market, we have now, using a hybrid of our coasteering and paddlesports training programmes successfully built a module which is delivered within our 3 month Outdoor Instructor Academy qualification.


We take huge pride in providing the best Super SUP tours and offering an amazing experience for our guests.  Don’t just take our word for it though, our reviews back this up!  We have over 3000 5 star Tripadvisor reviews and some amazing Google reviews…
