Paddleboarding in Newquay
Paddle Boarding in Newquay
Being Based in Newquay allows us to access some of the best Paddling in the area. From flat water rivers, pumping surf spots, beautiful coastal routes and some amazing point to points for down winding.
Based in the picturesque Harbour of Newquay we have on hand some amazing flat water to practice your paddle techniques and maneuvers. You can then scoot out of the harbour mouth into the protected waters of Newquay Bay. Towan beach holds some great waves. It’s the most protected wave in the area from predominant wind and an swell and allows us to learn to SUP Surf in small forgiving waves. As you move around the bay the waves get bigger and hollow and therefore offer a unique learning ground for the Stand up paddle boarder.
If Learning to surf a paddle board doesn’t float your boat and you want to do some adventure paddling then, again, Newquay Harbour is a brilliant place to begin from. With trips around the Gazzle towards the famous Fistral Beach as a starting tour to longer journeys around to Crantock Bay and up the Gannel Estuary.
A great little half day paddle is to go from Newquay Harbour to Beacon cove on the other side of Watergate Bay, then on return Catch a few waves on route at Watergate, whipsyderry and the bay. This is a full work out but well worth the mission.
The river Gannel on the south side of Newquay also provides us with some great Paddle boarding. A tidal river that comes into its own on those high tides and even more so when we have the big Autumn Spring tides. You can ride the tide up to the top of Tregunnel and back down out to the sweet river mouth left handers.
The Gannel is a site of Historic value and environmental biodiversity. It has the National Trust as a custodian on one side of the river and the residents of Newquay on the other side. This river is a hidden Gem in Newquay’s paddle boarding diversity.
