Paddle boarding in Pembrokeshire

Stand Up Paddleboarding in Pembrokeshire (SUP) is one of the fastest growing sports in the world, and SUP in a Bag aims to make it accessible to the whole family. SUP is easy to learn and in just a couple of hours you and your family will be enjoying exploring The Pembrokeshire coast, splashing around, spotting the local wildlife, admiring the backdrop and sharing a memorable experience.

There are two options:-
For children over 10 take part in a Parent and Child fun taster session. You will learn the basics of SUP while playing, laughing and getting wet.
For younger families we have designed the SUP Combo, a flexible package of mix and match where we design a 2 hour session for your family. Choices include a short journey with lots of stops, crabbing, picnics and games or pick a base and just hang out near the shore messing about on the water.

Our instructors are ISA qualified and hold a beach lifeguarding award & 1st Aid Certificates and have many years of experience working with children. For more information contact us on 01646680070 or follow the link below.

Surf’s up at National Trust Gupton Farm as the conservation charity announces an exciting activity base partnership with Pembroke’s Outer Reef Surf Centre. 

The activity base, which is located within walking distance of Freshwater West beach in Pembrokeshire, will offer watersports activities such as surfing, stand up paddle boarding, ISA Instrutor courses & SLSGB lifeguarding training.

Work is now underway at Gupton Farm, which also includes a campsite and farmhouse accommodation, to transform the former milking parlour into the activity area, with the base due to open this summer.

The new addition to the farmstead will focus on engaging visitors and the local community with the great outdoors and the area’s stunning stretch of coastline.

Speaking about the partnership, National Trust Gupton Farm campsite manager Bethan Jones, said: “We’re really excited to be working with Outer Reef Surf Centre at National Trust Gupton Farm and championing outdoor visitor experiences at this special place.

“Visitors can stay in an amazing location, have a go at watersports at one of Wales’ best beaches, as well as being able to follow our walking trails and enjoy wildlife watching at the on-site bird hide.”

Outer Reef Surf Centre’s Dean Gough, added: “We’re thrilled to be teaming up with the National Trust at Gupton Farm and love having Freshwater West as our office.

“The activity base will provide a great space for us to run watersports sessions, engage with visitors to the area and support our local community.”

The project has received funding through the Welsh Government Rural Communities - Rural Development Programme 2014-2020, which is funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the Welsh Government, and Cotswold Outdoor.
