Supersized stand up paddle board adventure on the Gannel Estuary
Exhilarating-yet-serene adventure
Suitable for all ages and abilities
Expert instructors and first-class equipment

Join Newquay Activity Centre on this unique adventure where epic action meets quiet beauty. Holding up to eight people, our oversized stand up paddle boards (SUPs) are a floating platform of fun. Journey’s along the beautiful Gannel Estuary are backdropped by rolling hills, blue lagoons and golden sand banks. Soak up the views, wildlife and the incredible heritage of one of Newquay’s most scenic waterways on our River Super SUP Tour.

Teeming with wildlife and sashaying with flicks of diamond blue water, the Gannel Estuary is a stand up paddle boarders dream. The Gannel is positioned just south of Towan Headland where it meets the sweeping sands of Crantock Beach. Our launch location enjoys a sheltered spot tucked away from the buzz of Newquay’s popular beaches.


However, we’re not ones for peace and quiet! We’re masters at whipping up adrenaline levels in even the most serene of places. Weapon of choice? Our awesome Super SUP! Holding up to eight people, our supersized stand up paddle board provides hilariously fun adventures and we have a whole fleet of them!  The Gannel estuary is a perfect playground for groups wanting to mix a dose of action with stunning views.



We’ll get you kitted out in all the gear - wetsuits, buoyancy aids and helmets – and fill you in on safety procedures and basic techniques. Then it’s time for action.


Our River 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 River Super SUP Tour kneeling down on the board, many people do. Our coaches are there to guide you step-by-step, helping you along the way. Within no time you will confidently progress from kneeling to standing; by the end of the lesson you’ll be a pro!


We’ll launch our humongous SUP from the banks of the Gannel and work as a group to explore the estuary with its overhanging trees and abundance of wildlife. With no swell to negotiate, it’s easy peasy so it won’t be long till we can pick up the pace and explore every nook, creek and cranny of this amazing habitat.


We’ll share tales of smugglers and fishermen to bring the history and heritage to life. Oh, and if you like games, we can throw in some of those too!



Animated, passionate and fun-loving, our industry-leading instructors seamlessly become part of the group experience; sharing their passion, expertise and first-rate knowledge of the Cornish coastline.

Newquay Activity Centre takes SUPing seriously; we have the qualifications and experience to consistently maintain a high level of safety and fun. We are a two-time Gold winner at the Cornwall Tourism Awards and a Gold award winner at the South West Tourism Awards. Our Super Stand Up Paddleboarding adventures in Newquay are days-out to remember!


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 group.



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.
