Bristol Harbour Charity Santa SUP


Update (6 Dec): Unfortunately we’ve had to cancel our 2022 event due to staffing issues. We’re super gutted but with most of the team out of town for the winter or on maternity our crew is a little slimline until April. Massive apologies and we hope to see you soon! This event will be back on Sunday 17 Dec 2023 (1-3pm)

Help us raise money to put the magic back into Christmas for thousands of vulnerable children all over the UK. Our Santa SUP is a great excuse to dress up in your festive finery and join us on the water, whist raising money for Action for Children – to help keep kids warm over winter and provide the essentials. Fancy dress is essential but there’s no need to be Santa – so get creative! Find out more about Action for Children.


1-3 pm approx


Please dress for the weather. We’re planning on being on the water rather than in it so we recommend warm non-cotton layers and jackets. Alternatively, a winter wetsuits will keep you toasty warm too. We have optional 3/2 wetsuit and jackets available but you’ll be warmer if you layer up. We’re never far from base and warm showers should you take a tumble.

Safety and previous experience

We’ll have instructors on the water at all times, we operate under 1:8 ratios with qualified instructors and paddle as a group. Buoyancy aids and leashes are mandatory at all times. We’ll normally expect you to have paddled with us before and be confident paddling in the conditions on the day. If you’ve not paddled with us but have experience elsewhere please get in touch first so we can discuss your experience. Because it’s likely to be fairly chilly this isn’t one for beginners; sorry. If conditions are too windy we may have to cancel and we’ll give you as much notice as possible if this is the case.
