What you'll do

You will meet with your instructor and launch from the Slipway in Golant, a picturesque village on the River Fowey and after a safety briefing head out on the river to start your session. If you are new to SUP the first part of your session will cover kneeling and paddle techniques and then standing! Once you are "UP" your instructor will lead you on a tour of the river to explore some of Cornwalls stunning waterways. Every session is different and the instructor will will advise you of the options whilst out on the river, depending upon your skill set, for the more adventurous you may head up river to explore or learn some of the more taxing manoeuvres such as a 360 turn. But for most a gentle paddle on the water getting used to the feel of your board, honing your new found skills and taking in the stunning scenery that surrounds you and the wildlife that is renowned in this area. SUP Socials and tours include a stop at the sandbanks and a snack whilst the instructors shares local knowledge of the area and its history!

Where you'll be

Golant is a picturesque village on the River Fowey, somewhat off the beaten track and as such has retained much of its natural beauty. Quaint and typically Cornish with narrow roads and stone built cottages. The river Fowey is tidal and as such we adhere to the safety requirements of the Harbour Commission with specific launch times. Just along the river is the famous "Sawmills" recording studio which has played host to many famous artists
