Stand Up Paddleboarding

Stand Up Paddleboarding

Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) is one of the fastest-growing watersports, offering a unique blend of relaxation, exercise, and adventure.

At Liverpool Watersports Centre, located on the vibrant Queen's Dock, SUP enthusiasts of all skill levels can enjoy an unforgettable experience on the water.

Whether you're new to SUP or a seasoned paddler, here's everything you need to know about stand up paddleboarding at Liverpool Watersports Centre.

Stand Up Paddleboarding combines elements of surfing and kayaking, allowing you to stand on a large, buoyant board while using a paddle to navigate.

This versatile sport can be as calming or as thrilling as you choose, depending on the environment and your skill level. It’s an excellent workout for your core, arms, and legs, and a fun way to connect with the great outdoors.
