The main thing that makes this different to surfing is the fact that you stand on the board and have a paddle to propel yourself along the coast. Stand up Paddle Boarding is often shortened to SUP as it makes it easier to say. The boards are generally much bigger than a surfboard, ranging from 8ft in length! SUP has taken off around the world since it started to hit the media in 2003. So what are you waiting for? Book your Sup adventure today with Outer Reef Surf & Sup School and find out about this awesome sport.

If you have been out before with us, we could start from a beach instead (weather conditions allowing). This activity is controlled by what the wind,swell and tide is up to.

  1. Wear a lifejacket: Always wear lifejacket or personal flotation device (PFD) that we provide when kayaking. Even if you're a strong swimmer, you never know what conditions you might encounter, and a lifejacket can help keep you afloat if you get into trouble.
  2. We check the weather: Before you go kayaking, check the weather forecast and the tide times. It's important to avoid kayaking in bad weather, wind or when the sea is rough. The Pembrokeshire coastline 
    can be particularly exposed to the wind and waves, so it's important to be aware of the conditions.
  3. Stay close to shore: If you're new to kayaking or not an experienced sea kayaker, it's a good idea to stay close to shore. This way, you can easily paddle back to land if you encounter any difficulties.
  4. Respect wildlife: The Pembrokeshire coastline is home to a range of wildlife, including seals, dolphins, and birds. It's important to respect their space and avoid getting too close. This will help to minimize disturbance to their natural habitat.
  5. Stay in a group: It's safer to kayak with others, rather than going solo. This way, you can keep an eye out for each other and help each other out if needed.

Buy following one of our tour or by following these guidelines and taking the necessary precautions, you can enjoy kayaking on the Pembrokeshire coastline safely and responsibly.
