Learn to Stand Up Paddleboard at Polkerris

Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) continues to be one of the world's fastest growing watersports. It provides a unique way to explore the coast or inland waters and we’ve found it has something to offer everyone whatever your age and skill.

It enables you to get out on the water and have fun with your friends, improve your fitness and core strength, master new skills as well as feel chilled and at one with nature.

The coastline surrounding Polkerris Beach is some of the safest and most charming in the country for learning and participating in this growing sport. The sheltered cove provides an easy launch spot and is ideal for practising close to the beach when conditions dictate.

Polkerris Beach is a BSUPA recognised training centre: your assurance that we are equipped and trained to provide you with quality and safe experiences. We provide all equipment, including a full wetsuit and buoyancy aid, and have changing room facilities with showers, a cafe and shop all on site.
