Stand Up Paddleboard

SUP is Booming!

It seems that everyone wants to get afloat on a SUP these days. There has been an explosion of stand-up paddleboard manufactures selling their wares with a steady stream of customers (you guys) looking to invest in one of the best Watersports in existence; and what a sport it is! From Flat water cruising and SUP yoga to epic down-winding in gale force winds and charging massive waves. Stand up paddling truly has something for everyone.

There is something special about propelling yourself across the water with a single bladed paddle. It just feels like a natural thing for a human to be doing, a rekindling of that ancient muscle memory dormant within us all.

The advent of Inflatable boards has brought SUP to a much wider audience. Storage issues are no longer an issue and transportation of your board is now a breeze.

Cave Active Adventures have been Stand Up Paddling almost since the beginning, with Phil taking to SUP back in 2010. We have seen the sport grow massively during that time. Back in those days boards were big, thick and heavy and everyone used oversized paddles with massive blades. Now we have ultralight and ultra-skinny carbon race boards, white water river boards and of course the inflatable. Phil has been there through the sports development and tried it all.

There are many SUP instructors, Schools and guides to choose from, but we are the genuine article. Not just another school, but a business born out of a passion for the water and SUP as a sport. If you want to do it, we have already been there, made the mistakes and learned the hard way, so you don’t have to.
