Originating in Hawaii, Stand – Up Paddleboarding or SUPing is an off shoot of traditional surfing and one of the most popular and fastest growing water sports in the world. The paddleboards are like large inflatable surfboards on which the rider stands or kneels depending on ability. SUPing is a great way to explore the shoreline of the loch and although it looks very relaxed it provides some excellent exercise building core strength and improving balance.
If you’re new to SUPing the water just off the farm is a great place to learn as the small island near the pier provides some shelter from the wind allowing to you find your balance. Once confident you can set off to explore the shore line, keep an eye out for a variety of wildlife such as geese, goldeneye and mallard ducks, roe deer, whooper swans and maybe even our resident ospreys fishing in the bay.
Please remember to bring swim wear to go under your wetsuit and a towel for drying and changing as we do not have changing facilities.
