North Devon SUP Lessons

Stand up paddleboarding is one of the fastest growing watersports in the world. We are one of the first schools in the UK to teach stand up paddleboarding. South West England is one of the best locations to discover this new exhilarating experience. Stand up paddleboarding has origins in West Africa and in Polynesia and people are paddling on rivers, lakes, and oceans all over the world. Stand up paddle surfing is just one small discipline of the sport with the fastest growing areas being on lakes, estuaries and rivers with individuals paddling recreationally, downwind or racing.

In fact, we are so convinced that you will take to stand up paddleboarding at Nick Thorn Surf Coaching, we guarantee you will be paddling by the end of your very first lesson! Who could say fairer than that? We would love to introduce you to this amazing new way of enjoying North Devon’s stunning coastline or even in the ocean. The UK is set to become world famous for stand up paddleboarding too, so get down here and take part in this incredible experience!
