I get asked quite a lot about paddle boarding clubs that people can join to make new friends. Paddleboarding is great fun with other people, it also makes it safer if anything goes wrong!
After a bit if research, I discovered there isn’t a SUP Club in the East Devon area, so I have decided to set one up! It’s a bit late in the season but it means by next year we should have an awesome gang! I am going to need a hand with it so any volunteers please give me an email or DM me on Instagram.
The first SUP Club meet up is on Thursday 22nd August, 7pm at Budleigh Salterton beach. Say you’re coming over here: https://www.facebook.com/events/350093945930030/
Here’s a list of some SUP centres and paddle socials that I am aware of in East/South Devon, if I have missed anyone, just drop me a message and I’ll add it in!
AS Watersports – Paddle to the pub
