Stand Up Paddleboarding


Welcome to the Home Of Stand Up Paddle Boarding and Wild Swimming in the heart of the Surrey Hill

The SHACS SUP Lagoon.

Join The SHAC and our BSUPA qualified instructors for a Stand up Paddle Boarding Skills Sessions, SUP YOGA, SUP Fitness, Wild Swimming and Freeride Sessions on our Stunning Private SUP lagoon near Reigate in Surrey.


Stand up paddle surfing and stand up paddle boarding (SUP) is an offshoot of surfing that originated in Hawaii. Unlike traditional surfing where the rider sits until a wave comes, stand up paddle boarders stand on their boards and use a paddle to propel themselves through the water.  Variations include flat water paddling for outdoor recreation, fitness, or sightseeing, racing on lakes, large rivers and canals, surfing on ocean waves, paddling in river rapids (whitewater SUP), Paddle board yoga and even fishing.
