About Us

Our Story

We run a Paddleboard board school (accredited water sport school by WSA) based in Coppet Hall beach, Saundersfoot, Pembrokeshire South Wales. During the summer season you can also rent bicycles from our shop and new for this summer a mega SUP board especially suitable for stag and hen do's. With our paddleboard safaris we go to the Monkstone point and beyond or venture off to the Estuary to let you discover more of the hidden secrets of Pembrokeshire. Our school has been accredited by the Water Skills Academy and our teachers are qualified WSA SUP Instructors. We spend the winter in the French Alps (Portes du Soleil), where we offer private ski tuition through our BASI level 4 private ski instructor. Alain is highly qualified and teaches in French and English. The aim of our ski lessons are to provide high quality ski coaching, customised to each customer's needs, while at the same time exploring the area and having a good time.

Our Mission

Our aim is to encourage paddleboarding, kayaking, and biking in and around Saundersfoot. We want to help Saundersfoot to become great destination for Paddleboarders and to help people improve their confidence through sport.
