SUP XL ADVENTURES are super fun for junior, family or household groups. We have four giant boards in two sizes : 14ft (L) holding maximum of 4 adults or max 5 person family (2 adults + 3 smaller kids). The 17ft (XL) that can hold max 6 big adults or max 8 adults or juniors of mixed size (familes etc).

We offer guided adventures along Dunbars beautiful coastline cover everything you need to learn including safety, paddle technique and how to control your board in prone, kneeling and standing positions. We also throw in lots of fun games and challenges and its even more fun with two groups out at the same time.

All adventures take place on top of the range paddle boards and our wetsuits will keep you warm whatever the weather. Younger children (7-10yrs ) can take part but must be able to swim 50m and be supervised by a guardian adult on board (unless part of a junior group lesson or course where our instructors will be in charge).

We try to schedule SUP classes with the best tides and when the coast is calm. We also offer alternative sports should conditions be too difficult on the day.

Availability : May to August – and private group classes – if no availability please email.
