Oxfordshire’s original SUP School, we are a BSUPA (British Stand Up Paddle Boarding Association) recognised SUP school. Our instructors are qualified via the BSUPA Instructor Training scheme, and are trained by the UK’s most accomplished SUP paddlers. The sessions we run follow BSUPA’s tried & tested format, and are designed to be safe, fun and enjoyable. They are a great introduction to the sport and suitable for people of all ages and abilities.
We’re passionate about developing SUP in the UK, and introducing this amazing sport to as many people as possible. Our qualified and experienced SUP instructors will get you on the water and paddling with confidence on your first lesson.
Proud to be industry leading experts, we specialise in providing unique and exciting SUP experiences, structured fun and safe beginner SUP lessons, intermediate and advanced SUP training and a range of SUP events for groups, companies and charities. Everything we do is about enjoyment of the outdoors, living a healthy lifestyle and developing skills to support your mental health and wellbeing.
All of our Level 1 Beginner sessions and Level 2 Improver’s sessions take place at Oxford SUP Club’s home on the water at Farmoor Reservoir. We have access to over 15 million litres of fresh water on the two huge lakes at Farmoor, which is just 5 miles from Oxford City centre. We’ve got fantastic facilities at the reservoir, which include changing rooms, plenty of parking and a great Clubhouse and SUP Shop.
Our regular SUP Club Social Paddle sessions run throughout the year, and are suitable for people who have either mastered the basics of SUP, or have taken part in one of our SUP Lessons or and want to paddle more regularly, and meet like-minded people. If you haven’t paddle boarded before, don’t worry we can get you booked into a beginner lesson so we can get you up to speed and equipped with the skills you need to join us for SUP Club.
Wednesday evenings we explore the rivers around Oxford, and Fridays and Sundays we’re on the water at Farmoor Reservoir. We aim to create an environment for SUP enthusiasts to develop their skills, make new friends and enjoy social paddles around Oxfordshire and beyond.
SUP is a really social sport, and it’s an ideal activity to do with family and friends. It can be enjoyed on any flat water, whether it’s a river, lake or canal, and it offers people the enjoyment of a sporting activity, with the relaxing environment of time spent with friends on the water.
The best way to get started with this exciting new sport is to book yourself onto our 1 hour ‘SUP Skills Taster’ lessons or a 2 hour “Ready to Ride” SUP lesson. Once you’ve mastered the basics you’ll be ready to take on some longer river trips, and join us on for our regular SUP Club meetings.
