Recommended by McConks: SUP schools and rental locations

One of the most frequent questions we get asked is: “where can I learn to SUP?” People also often query who the best SUP instructors are for improving paddle strokes or working on specific technical skills. So we thought it was about time we put these things on a map.

Every one of these schools/instructors are endorsed by us and has appropriate qualifications for the teaching they provide. They have appropriate insurance and approval for the locations they operate from. Believe it or not, these things are not a given. Because there is no definitive national governing body for SUP, there are lots of cowboys/girls out there! We know these businesses professionally and personally and can vouch for the quality of the teaching and gear that they provide.

Information included the map:

  • Training accreditation
  • Coaching provided: beginner/progressing/advanced/elite
  • Whether they’re open to the general public
  • Opening hours
  • Location (fixed or mobile)
  • Specialisms (eg. Yoga, whitewater, doggy SUP)
  • Contact details

The map is continuously evolving evolving with only some of our partners and friends listed.
