SUP Stratford was started by Anna and Nick in 2020. The pair have countless hours of paddling experience under their belts and wanted to share their passion with others. During 2020 the sport exploded and SUP Stratford wanted to ensure that as many people as possible could enjoy the sport in a safe environment.
Nick started his outdoor career in Kayaks and Canoes but couldn’t resist the pull of a paddle board, and even ventures down some more challenging white water routes in his spare time. Nick has a passion for the outdoors and enjoys climbing.
Anna also has experience of teaching in an outdoor environment as a mountain boarding instructor and couldn’t pass up the chance to add to her CV with the Water Skills Academy SUP Instructor qualification.
Gary is the latest recruit to SUP Stratford. Gary’s day job is a professional leadership coach working with people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds. Qualified as a BCU Paddle Sports Instructor he transfer these skills to his SUP lessons ensuring they are fun, delivered with enthusiasm and always tailored to the needs of the individual or group.
