We start with an introduction on the beach and then go off on our knees and have a go at standing up, once you feel happy with standing on the board we explore a few different ways of navigating the board and then head off towards the Harbour or Wisemans Bridge depending on the wind direction.
The SUP Safari is ideal for paddle boarders at an intermediate level. We organise SUP Safari’s in Saundersfoot, Tenby and the Estuary. Contact us for more information.
Our Mega board is great for all groups; if you are organising a hen or a stag do or the next day out with your team, search no longer. We can organise early bird paddles with a brunch afterwards or sun set paddles with a bbq on the beach. Contact us for more information.

Pembrokeshire in Southwest Wales was the UK’s first ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’ and has the UK’s only coastal National Park. Unsurprisingly, it boasts some of the finest coastal scenery anywhere and paddlers visiting for the first time are often blown away by the place! For paddle boarders Pembrokeshire has it all; beautiful beaches, cliffs, estuaries and islands, populated by wildlife galore. Saundersfoot is only one out of several stunning locations suitable for paddle boarding, but it is our favourite spot especially because it offers a big protected bay for paddle boarders from every level.
Visit us in Coppet Hall, Saundersfoot or join us on one of our safaris in the Estuary. All lessons are held in calm waters. It’s a fun and enjoyable way of discovering places that are only accessible from the water. And it is a sociable sport that can be enjoyed by the whole family, groups, or team members.
We are based at Coppet Hall Beach next to The Big Beach surf shop. There is a big car park in front of Coppet Hall Beach Center (unfortunately not suitable for high vehicles). Other parking spaces can be found in Saundersfoot and at the Harbour of Saundersfoot. It’s only a 10min. walk from the center of Saundersfoot: follow the road behind the cottages along the coast and go through the tunnel. There are toilets, changing rooms, showers, and a Kiosk for tea and coffee at Coppet Hall Beach Center.

She is also interested in Pilates and how to use certain exercises to improve your performance on a SUP.
