It’s all about trust: setting up a stand up paddle boarding business

Stand up paddleboarding, (SUP) is riding the crest of a wave right now. The ever growing popularity of paddleboarding has led to a big growth in the paddle board market, and lots of business opportunities for people looking to escape from their day job.

As McConks, we work with a large number of outdoor education providers, SUP rental businesses, and instructors, from the Princes Trust, the National Trust, and the Scout Association at a National Scale, to working with individual instructors giving learn to ride SUP lessons, or working with charter Yacht companies who provide SUP adventure weeks to small groups.

We’ve put together everything we know and have heard about setting up a successful SUP business in a series of articles below.
