Event description

Description


Stand Up Paddleboarding or "SUP" has taken the world by storm and is now the fastest growing sport worldwide. It’s easy to see why: with comparatively low cost, the convenience of inflatable boards and the fact that you can just get on and go; but these are only just some of the reasons.

Join us at Stanfords as we talk to Simon Bassett about this fantastic sport. His new book Stand Up Paddleboarding: A Beginner’s Guide is a perfect introduction. It’s the first UK how-to book on paddleboarding and covers everything you need to know about getting started. He also describes the different types of paddleboarding from touring and exploring, racing, surfing and yoga / fitness.

Come along and find out what SUP could do for you and we think that, if you haven’t already done so, you'll catch the SUP bug and want to give it a try this summer!

Tickets £4 (redeemable against the price of Stand Up Paddleboarding: A Beginner’s Guide by Simon Bassett).


Includes a glass of wine/soft drink.
