What Our Clients Think

Delighted to recommend South Wales Paddle Boarding Club! On my 3rd SUP improvers session now and Jen (and Ben) have been fabulous. As a slightly older gent, I was a little nervous when I started, these days I’m feeling very competent. Can’t wait to order my own equipment and go touring South Wales. If you’re thinking of learning to Paddle Board (no matter your age!), highly recommend.

What a laugh! I fell in a few times but was soon paddling around the Marina. Great people, great starter lesson and great fun! If you haven’t tried paddle boarding, book it now! Ordering my first board next pay day! Good times and vibes.

What an amazing day!! We booked 10 spaces as a private lesson for my birthday with a group of friends. Most of us had never been paddle boarding before but we were all exploring the Marina in no time! Jen was a brilliant instructor, the location was calm and easy to learn on. Great fun and would 100% recommend!

We love this club! My family and I have been paddling with Jen, Jim and the others for just over 2 years now. The social paddles are an important part of our week. The exercise, people and fun make it a perfect reason to get out of the house.

Can’t wait to book again! Had a learner sessions with some friends and it was amazing! Ben was super thorough and patient. A lovely coach and a great place to learn to SUP. We had lovely weather which topped off the day. We all stayed for coffee in the Deck afterwards too. What lovely day, will definitely be back for more.
