Lake District Paddleboarding
on Lake Windermere

Probably the most popular watersport we offer and for good reason. Whether you’re keen to journey, learn, chill out, clock up the km or push each other in we’re right there with you. We offer lessons, hire and even monster SUPs for your whole gang so there’s never been a better way to embrace the UK’s fastest growing paddle sport! Launch from one of the most idyllic locations in the Lake District.

Stand Up Paddleboarding in The Lake District

Stand Up Paddleboarding (also known as SUP) is brilliant fun. We offer instructed lessons and paddleboard board hire to help you hone your skills or experience SUP for the first time. Ours is a fleet of RED boards, arguably the best on the water.

The benefits of an instructed session are that you’ll master the basic paddle boarding strokes quickly and journey with ease to make the most of your session … spend more time paddling, less time swimming! We may even progress to headstands! We’ll also be with you for safety support for added confidence. We require at least one adult in your party, but not necessarily taking part. The lessons are 1.5 hours long.

Or you may opt for our Lake Windermere paddleboard hire option if you’ve SUP’d before. We’re happy to hire to water confident first timers too. We require at least one adult in your party to be on the water. You can opt for one hour, two hours of you may prefer a half day adventure.

If there are a few of you, why not choose to take out one of our Monster Paddleboards; each board holds up to 8 people and they’re brilliant fun that require everyone to be standing facing the front and paddling in the same direction, which is sometimes easier said than done! :).  We have two giant boards, so if you fancy a bit of competition your group of up to 16 people can split into two teams and race head to head.  Whether you use your board(s) for racing, cruising, a picnic on the lake, practising gymnastics or as a sunbathing platform, you’re bound to have a blast with our Monster SUPs.

What better place to enjoy paddleboarding than England’s largest lake, in the heart of the Lake District National Park – Lake Windermere? As with all our experiences, this will be a private booking for your party if you book a lesson. Happy SUP’ing!

The watersports centre is a ‘pop-up’, from April to October and at the end of the season, we pack up, leave no trace and allow Grubbins Point peace and quiet over the winter before all the fun starts again next year.  With no electricity or running water, we run purely on our inner energy and sunshine. 

PLEASE NOTE; we don’t take online bookings for same day watersports in case we’re inundated and unable to staff them so for  bookings within 24 hours, please call or email your enquiry and hopefully we’ll be able to fit you in. 🙂
