SUP – Stand Up Paddleboarding

Learn | Progress | Advanced skills & race technique | Yoga | Fitness | Tours & Holidays

Already the UK’s fastest growing watersport, the last year has seen an absolute boom in paddleboarding (SUP), and it’s easy to see why. In just a 2hr SUP Intro session complete novices can be standing up and paddling, and then once you’re up, you’re hooked and you’re off. 

SUP is easily accessible and suitable for people of all ages and abilities, we’ve taught from 7yrs through to people well into their 80s. It’s also a great all-inclusive activity for the whole family to learn and progress together, even your dog can join in!

With SUP your options are endless, you can adapt depending on your mood and weather conditions. From a mindful, tranquil paddle taking you closer to nature as you explore inland waterways through to the adrenalin rush as you SUP Surf to the sheer stamina and fitness required for a sprint race or a long distance endurance event. You can even take your regular Yoga/Pilates and Fitness classes onto a SUP to really challenge your core and ‘up’ the intensity of your workout.

If you’re keen to get fit to better enjoy SUP then get in touch for a SUP specific personal fitness training programme to get you SUP ready for general leisure and pleasure through to date/season specific races and challenges.

We regularly attend SUP events (see events for list of forthcoming events) and welcome new SUPers to #TeamMoxie to join us as we take on these challenges!

Regular sessions and tours run at various locations or, as we’re mobile, we can arrange in your preferred location. You can paddleboard with us off the beach, on rivers and enclosed inland waters across Sussex & Surrey. Please note that tide times and weather will affect our session days/times and locations. 

Our sessions run with a max of 6 students per instructor to enable us to give you the time and attention you need to get the most from your lesson. We are qualified, experienced, insured, DBS checked and highly confident that we’ll have you standing up and smiling on your board in your first intro session.

Sasha gives an excellent paddle boarding class. I had a 1-1 session as a beginner (I’m 65, so no spring chicken!) and found her to be both patient and encouraging.  By the end of the session I had built my confidence and my technique was much improved thanks to Sasha’s professional tutoring and care for my well being.  An excellent, fun session, which I can thoroughly recommend.” Carrie
