It’s all about Stand up Paddle

 

SUP CLUB

Imagine a sport that can be a relaxing cruise along the coastline taking in the wild-life, a thorough cardiovascular work-out or a heart pounding adrenaline ride in equal measure – and you’ll know what’s SUP. Stand up paddleboarding, or paddlesurfing, is the latest adrenaline water sport to hit the U.K shores and there is no better place to try it out than at SUP Gower on the stunning Gower peninsula in South Wales.
Stand up paddle surfing (SUP), stand up paddle boarding, or in the Hawaiian language Hoe he’e nalu, is sport originating in Hawaii, an offshoot of surfing, that enables surfers to paddle farther across the ocean than typically done on a convential surfboard.
A 2013 report called it the outdoor sporting activity with the most first-time participants of any in that year.
Stand up paddle boarding offers surfers or those with a passion for the water the ability to catch more waves in a set, as well as offering a better view of incoming sets (ocean waves they may want to ride that are approaching from the sea).

Learning to Stand up paddle board involves patience and balance, you don’t need to be really strong or fit , you just need to choose the right conditions and the best board to suit your needs! Its great way to enjoy the coastline or inland waterways even if you have never had a surf lesson.You may not want to even enter the waves…and prefer a tranquil paddle across calm water.
SUP is also getting a lot of praise as a great form of cardiovascular crossover training and considered a great way to exercise and keep in shape even without riding in waves, even Cindy Crawford has been seen with a paddle!

WINTER Training

In the Winter months when daylight is at a minimum and it gets dark at 5pm ..We usually head to Llanelli North dock. (Postcode SA152LF) The dock is a fantastic place with gentle sloping sand into the water and calm conditions not affected by tides or wind too much. Think of it as ‘Gym on a Paddleboard’.

Our Cable wakeboarding will open in Llanelli dock in May alongside SUP Yoga ands SUP Polo and plenty of other water sport….  so even more reason to get involved !

Pool Training & SUP Polo

We run indoor pool sessions in Penlan leisure swimming pool in early 2017 , so make sure you register your interest with us by emailing with  ”Pool lesson” in the subject bar to:  mail@supgower.com
