Vobster Quay welcomes stand up paddleboarders with a range of high-quality facilities that provide all you need to enjoy a fun and leisurely SUP experience.
Welcome to the UK's friendliest open water activities venue. During the months of May through to the end of September, we offer Vobster Quay SUP members the opportunity to enjoy a leisurely session on our beautiful lake.
As a Vobster Quay SUP member, you can choose a timed booking slot for a four hour session on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings over the Summer months only. The timed booking slots start at 16:00 and end at 20:00. SUP is not available outside these sessions.

Please note that we require that SUP users must either paddleboard in pairs or have one assigned land-based spotter who watches them throughout their session. Spotters must prebook attendance too (see below).

Please do not turn up if you are not a current member and have not booked a session.

Fancy giving SUP a try?
If you don't own your own SUP equipment and fancy giving it a try, lessons can be booked through our friends at Adventure SUP.
NO SUP GEAR? - Please note that we do not hire out SUP equipment or boards.
You will need to own and bring all your own equipment including buoyancy aids and foot pumps.
