Stand-up Paddle (SUP) is the fastest growing water sport in the world, and it's little wonder why. The low-impact sport encourages general fitness through strength and balance exercise, all while having fun in the water. Better yet, the leisurely sport requires no existing level of skill to be able to have a great time.
At Stand Up Paddle Boarding HQ we provide lessons, Yarra tours, penguin tours, hire, core fitness classes, equipment sales and advice. We have boards and paddles to match your skill level and instructors who are passionate about SUP and excited to help you learn and master the sport.
We operate from three great locations, St Kilda beach, Sorrento foreshore and the boatsheds on Melbourne's Yarra River. All locations are perfect places to learn SUP in a safe, fun and protected environment. At St Kilda you can unwind and enjoy the tranquility paddling amongst the yachts and the sea life including some of St Kilda's 1000 penguins. At Sorrento if you get lucky, you may see some dolphins joining in the fun! On the Yarra you can enjoy the panoramic view of Melbourne's best known tourist sites including the MCG, Eureka Tower and Polywoodside, all from a unique location on the water.
If you are not comfortable on the water or the winds is up, then try our Hawaiian Kahuna Street SUP's and enjoy an adventure street surfing along the beach boardwalk or through the city streets.
Stand Up Paddle Boarding HQ offers much more than your first lesson or tour. As full supporters of a growing SUP community and the founders of the Port Phillip CUP SUP race, we provide a range of other experiences for individuals and groups, whether social or corporate. Night paddles, tours, 'Down Winder Paddles' and team building exercises are among our offered activities. Races and social BBQs are also no problem to organise. Tell us what you'd like to do, and we'll do our best to facilitate it.
