SUP Stratford started in 2020 by outdoor enthusiast and local, Anna Payne. When Anna found paddleboarding, she quickly discovered how inclusive and supportive the SUP community was. She quickly built her confidence on the paddleboard and wanted to share this fun activity with others in Stratford-upon-Avon.
Passionate about outdoor sports, Anna is also a trained mountain boarding instructor and she is now a Water Skills Academy certified SUP instructor.
Gary Spence joined Anna as the latest SUP Stratford Instructor. Leadership Coach by day, Gary is a qualified BCU paddle sports instructor. Both SUP Stratford instructors are certified to adminster First Aid in the Outdoors.
