      Brilliant session!
      A brilliant 1-1 session with Alex. Felt slightly anxious on arrival, but Alex's warm welcome and sense of humour immediately put me at ease. I'm not a complete beginner - but had lost a little confidence on the water and wanted to improve my paddle technique as I'd never had a formal lesson before. We went back to basics and I learnt some new skills. We had an enjoyable paddle on a beautiful calm stretch of the River Avon which is a perfect setting for beginners. If you are looking for a beginner or improver lesson with a great coach, I would highly recommend booking. Wittering SUP is the perfect place to learn and gain confidence on the water safely.

      Alex and James are great teachers
      I was very nervous my husband thought I was going to get back in the car, but Alex introduced herself and put me at ease. She is so good and got me standing really quick I also learned how to manoeuvre the paddleboard. Self Rescue is very hard for me but im not giving up , Roll on next week

      Step-back turn coaching session
      I am just starting out SUP racing and having managed without learning how to do a step-back turn before, I found myself struggling on a new rigid board. Alex broke down the movement really clearly and I was quickly getting the hang of it. Lots of great advice and feedback on how to improve going forward. The location was perfect. Deep, clear water meaning falling in (which I did my fair share of) was not an issue. We had a lot of fun, and it massively improved my confidence moving around the board. I can't wait to get back out to practice again.

      Brilliant paddle boarding experience
      Alex was a brilliant teacher and I was up and boarding far more quickly than I expected. The section of the river Avon where they are based is absolutely beautiful - so tranquil and calm. I would recommend Wittering Sup to everyone - a really enjoyable way to learn a new skill, relax and connect with nature whilst also gently challenging yourself.

      Evening paddle for two!
      We spent a lovely evening on the river with Alex, who is such a good instructor! It was my second paddle with her and my husband’s first ever paddle. It was chilled and relaxed and Alex knew exactly how to make sure that each of us were challenged to the right kind of level! Highly recommended!

      Another excellent morning with Wittering SUP. Alex and James are excellent teachers, giving great instruction in a fun way. It gives you the confidence to get out on the river. The location is excellent, a beautiful and very quiet spot on the Avon river. Cannot think of one reason not to go back again

      Excellent tuition
      James provided thorough training on land before letting us loose on the river. We had perfect weather conditions on a beautiful stretch of the Avon. We have since bought a board because we enjoyed it so much.

      First stand up paddle boarding lesson
      What a great introduction to such a fun sport! I have a feeling I am going to be hooked!! James was great. Really clear instructions, great tips and lots of encouragement. In the two hour session I learnt so much not just about SUP but James knows his stuff on the surroundings and the wildlife. The location was stunning and it was a great workout. James was also really vigilant at following current safety guidelines. I would highly recommend you book in 👍👍👍

    Brilliant experience from start to finish.
    Would recommend this experience to anyone thinking of giving it a go. no matter what your size or age is. my wife and I are both rotund and in our late fifties, Alex & James were so professional, reassuring and calming they removed all the anxiety we were feeling. I had a couple of swimming lessons along the way unlike the wife.

    I bought the SUP safari for myself and my husband as he'd never had proper instruction and wondered why he always seemed to go round in circles whenever he went SUPping.

    Alex was brilliant, gave clear instructions on safety, how to get on and off the board from land and water. Plenty of enthusiasm, pointers during the safari and we had loads of fun doing it.

    She sent on the photos from the day, some of which are hilarious.

    I can definitely recommend this for beginners or those that need a refresher. The river is clean, and the environment beautiful.

    We came and did the paddle board safari with Alex the day after getting engaged. It ended up being just the two of us and Alex - so felt like a private experience.

    The session started with some stretching, and familiarising ourselves with the paddleboard stroke, manoeuvring in the water and kneeling/standing technique.

    We had a lovely few hours on the water with Alex, who was a really good coach and made us feel comfortable even though we had never paddleboarded before. We had a really good laugh the whole way and Alex made sure to take some lovely photos of us that she sent over afterwards so that we could remember the trip.

    It was a really fun and enjoyable experience that we wouldn't hesitate to do again.

    What a wonderful morning spent paddle boarding with James & Alex.
    Slightly overcast and 16 degrees, it was perfect - I’m pregnant and was a little nervous but was put totally at ease and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. My husband stood up whereas I enjoyed paddling on my knees.
    I would highly recommend this for beginners and as an activity for couples - we were so well looked after and in good hands!

    It was touch and go whether our Paddleboarding trip would go ahead due to bad weather reports. But we crossed fingers as we were on our hols and couldn’t do another time.
    We turned up at arranged time and all was good with the weather.
    A lovely welcome from Alex. Kitted out and down to the edge of the river for a very informative guide to Paddleboarding although not complete novices her explanations and guidance was brilliant.
    We had a lovely chilled paddle down the Avon where we felt at ease and not rushed. This was one of our highlights to our weeks hol and loved every minute of it.
    If in the area would book again. Would recommend to anyone wanting to try . Thank you Alex….Perfect 😁

    Would thoroughly recommend. Alex took two complete beginners and soon had the two of of us up on our feet and paddling down the river. The instruction to get us started and support throughout were brilliant. The river is a beautiful place to be. A perfect way to spend a morning. We will certainly be doing this again.

    Fantastic experience, highly recommended! Alex and James were very informative and made Eric and myself feel very safe whilst on the river, even managed a yoga pose on the board.
    You have inspired us to get our own boards and for all the 60+ people, it really doesn’t matter how old you are! It’s great to get out there and have some fun.
    Thanks Alex and James, you will see us again :)

    We had the most amazing Sunday morning on the the river with SUP Wittering. Alex and James are truly exceptional. They are not just instructors; they are pure bundles of energy, positivity and laughter! Their warm welcome and infectious enthusiasm set the tone for a great day on the water. With Alex and James, it's not just about learning how to paddle board; it's about making memories and embracing the joy of being out on the river.

    Our group of eight, including a few first-timers, couldn't have been in better hands. Alex and James are masters at tailoring their instruction to individual skill levels, ensuring that everyone feels comfortable and confident before setting off. They provide exceptional support and encouragement! Just last year I couldn't imagine myself being as confident as I am now, but Alex simply didn't take my "I can't" for an answer.

    Also, the location is absolutely stunning. Peaceful and relaxing.

    I can't recommend SUP Wittering highly enough. If you want to explore the beaty of SUP, you are in safe hands!
