SUP Lesson & Tour

Sessions start from £25 per person / 90 minutes. Gift vouchers are also available! 

Our tours are led by Water Skills Academy/ British Canoe Union qualified SUP instructors who are keen to pass on their skills. Tours start at the Riverside Caravan Park on the Tiddington Road in Stratford, which provides an ideal setting for the activity, with parking, toilets and a bar/café for anyone in your party. 

Each session starts with a safety briefing, a familiarisation demonstration of the kit and some pointers to get you started on the river. Sessions take place on one of the quieter sections of the Avon upstream of the launch site and usually last around 90 minutes in total. Instructors are available to give you hints and tips on your SUP technique.
