Stand Up Paddleboarding Reviews

My Partner and I did the 2 hour SUP this weekend with Ollie. We had such an amazing experience. The SUP was great fun and we can't thank Ollie enough for his patience and experience. The Sun was shining and we even got to see a seal. It was such a great day and highly recommend.

Date of experience: June 2021

First lesson for novice. Standing by end. Jenna is an absolute star instructor. Can’t wait for next session!

We booked a 2 hour stand up paddleboarding (SUP) session with Jenny, and it was brilliant! The instructions to the meeting point were really clear and easy. Our instructor Jen was great, knowledgeable, patient as well as clear and concise with her instructions. Had lots of fun, would recommend booking with Fore if you’re looking for a few hours of water adventure!

A great SUP lesson with Ollie. All members of the family had fun. Tuition was great and Ollie showed patience and gave lots of encouragement.

The very best beach experiences

Jump aboard the paddle boards from our hut on Middle beach to explore Studland bay, one of the souths most beautiful beaches and onto the world famous stacks at Old Harry Rocks. The Dorset coast provides the perfect setting for a SUP adventure and our sheltered bay is a great location to develop your skills and take a journey. This course is the perfect adventure for those adventurous types who have some previous experience of stand up paddleboarding and a good level of fitness.

The Jurassic coastline provides endless opportunities for paddle boarding and we are fortunate to have our base right on the shoreline, so no time is wasted in hitting the water. Our guides are excellent paddlesport instructors and have ample experience to share with you so that you can better your SUP skills and get the most out of your time on the water with us and feel confident planning your own future SUP adventures.

You will need to complete the 2 hour intro to stand up paddleboarding or be competent on a SUP to take part. Please be aware that on rare occasions the conditions may not be favourable to go as far as Old Harry Rocks and in this case we will reduce the trip to a 2 hour session in the bay, or take the journey to Old Harry Rocks on kayaks instead if we have availability.
