SUP Bristol Members Sessions

Regular stand up paddleboarding sessions in Bristol

You’ve tried a taster or harbourside adventure and you want to do more paddleboarding in Bristol. What next? After you’ve paddled with SUP Bristol once you’re very welcome to join our members* SUP Sessions, up to six days a week though the summer.

All sessions are 60 minutes long and run by our qualified and experienced instructors. We start promptly so please arrive wearing gear for paddling or allow some time to get changed and lock gear away. We tailor each session to your ability level – do let your instructor know if you’d like to be pushed, work on your technique or simply enjoy a leisurely paddle. Our sessions are suitable for all and we leave no-one behind.

*Free membership Our tasterharbourside adventure and group sessions include free annual SUP Bristol membership. Much more than a tick-box exercise, these sessions are vital to give you the information you need to paddle safely in the busy Bristol harbour and you must have completed one prior to joining our members’ SUP sessions.

Why join us?

Our sessions are great fun and there’s nowhere better to be on a sunny evening after work (or an early morning blast before the ferries begin). We’re a social bunch and our evening groups often end up in the Cottage Inn after a session. We’re all about making it easy to get on the water so there’s no membership fee and no commitment required. We hope to see you on the water this summer!


We want to make it possible to paddle regularly so we’ve introduced a series of passes to keep the price as low as possible. Join us for as little as £8 a time, or even less if you’re a Move GB member.

No commitment

We don’t believe in memberships you’ll forget to cancel. Join us when you like with no commitment.

SUP trips and coaching

We’re running several brilliant day SUP coastal and river trips throughout the summer which you’re very welcome to join. If you want to improve your personal or rescue skills to be able to paddle independently you might be interested in one of our fundamentals courses, monthly throughout the summer.
