Stand Up Paddle Surf Lessons
Stand Up Paddle Surf Lessons
We offer a SUP (Stand Up Paddle) school right on the Knysna Lagoon, on Leisure isle. Beginners can learn the art of Stand-up paddle boarding in a protected shallow environment with Tony as your instructor, always on hand. As you progress we will take you for a lagoon tour, and weather permitting even venture right into the famous Knysna Heads. We also do SUP tours up the Knysna River into the old drift , where the paddler can experience true flat water river touring. The views, birdlife, and conditions in general are awesome for the whole family.

For the more experienced core paddler, Tony will take you on an unforgettable surfing experience right into the famous Knysna Heads, at Coffin Bay. This is for experienced board riders only, and is only available at Spring Low tide, with enough swell out at sea to generate 3-4ft perfect waves inside the Knysna Heads.

For the novice paddler/board rider wanting to venture into the surf we have the perfect beach. Tony will meet you at the beach and accompany you into the surf for your first session in the waves. Tony will ensure you get into the right spot for take-off , and most importantly teach you the unwritten laws of surf etiquette!! Where and when to take off, which wave to choose, and how to respect the locals is undoubtedly the most important lesson you can learn here. Your instructor is an experienced waterman with countless hours of surf experience and time in the water at Buffalo Bay, you are guaranteed a safe first time introduction into the art of wave riding.

We supply all equipment, including boards, paddles and wetsuits. We are also agents for Naish and F.One Stand Up Paddle boards and Mystic accessories. Contact us anytime for a quote, demo, hire, or to purchase a board!!

Stand Up paddling is a refreshing, easy, and exciting way to get in shape. Proper paddling technique at higher intensities, using the right equipment, and having Tony next to you is a superb way to strengthen your core, have a great workout, and have fun while you do it!! Join us for a time trial on the lagoon every 1st Tuesday of the month where we get the race boards out and go give the canoe club boys and girls a run for their money. Stand Up paddle Boarding is one of the fastest growing sports in the world, and touring/cruising on these boards is an awesome way to get outside.
