Standup Paddle Boarding
Come down to Brighton Beach and give Paddle Boarding a go...
Brighton beach has it all
Originally from Hawaii, this sport derived from the local surfers paddling out on big surf boards, they stood on these to take photos of the tourists surfing, a few of these local guys then started surfing them. However it was Laird Hamilton, in about 2005, who really began to surf these boards!!
On the flat days, Laird would use these boards for fitness, and for a relaxing paddle around the islands.
Along with Jock Paterson (Tribal Wave), double UK champion 2009, we here at Brighton Watersports were some of the first in the UK to take this sport off the shores this side of the Atlantic!!
SUP (stand up paddling) is great for fitness, relaxing at sunset, coastal touring, river running and surfing!
We run courses for paddle boarding all year covering equipment, and once you have mastered the basics we can help you choose if you want to buy your own board, or you are welcome to come down and hire any of ours!
We have a wide range of boards to try out, from 9ft to 15ft, flat water boards or surf!
All the staff here are keen paddlers, so our knowledge is not from a book, but many years experience and love for the sport!

Our Stand up Paddle Lessons are £40 per person and lasts for two and a half hours
