Stand Up Paddleboarding

Take a breathtaking nautical tour of Porthleven’s breathtaking coastline and historic inner harbour.

Since exploding into existence from seemingly nowhere around 5 years ago, stand up paddle-boarding (or SUPing for short) has taken the world by storm and has become the preferred method of coastal exploration for many a visitor to Cornwall, with SUP schools sprouting up all over the place.

Porthleven is no different, and we’re proud to be teaming up with local SUP school Vertical Blue to offer SUP lessons and tours for all levels of experience. The school itself is situated Porthleven harbour-side, a ten minute walk from the festival site.

Sessions are £30 for 2 hours of fun, including tuition and equipment hire (wet suit, board, paddle and life-jacket).

Sessions are limited to 10 people per group and will be held at the following times:

– Friday 3rd May 6pm
– Saturday 4th May 1pm
– Saturday 4th May 5pm
– Sunday 5th May 2pm

Please note that the ocean around Porthleven is very changeable. In the event that we cannot take you out to sea safely we will conduct the lesson in the inner Harbour instead. In the unfortunate event that the weather is so bad that we cannot be in the water safely you will be issued a full refund.
