Have a splash with our new water sport that's becoming very popular 

Stand Up Paddle Boarding (SUP), is a brilliant new sport that has just arrived at Leicester Outdoor Pursuits Centre. The boards themselves are like large surf boards – you can lie down and use your hands, kneel on them and paddle them like a canoe or stand up and use our longer paddles designed especially for this brand new innovative sport.

As you progress you will learn how to paddle in a straight line, spin around and improve your balance as you move around your board.

There are lots of games to play on the individual boards as well as our giant boards (the Mega SUP) that the whole group can get on and paddle down the river as a team.

Book onto an Adventure Club session, bring a group of friends or colleagues, come with the family or bring your youth group.
