Wesup Abbey Sands is the ultimate paddle board destination for beginners in South Devon. Situated on Torquay seafront, it offers unrivalled access to the magic of the English Riviera UNESCO Global Geopark from the ocean by paddle board or sit-on-top kayak. The wonderfully sheltered cove of Torre Abbey Sands boasts panoramic views across the bay and is perfect for beginners taking their first step onto the water. Natural reef and kelp forests line the cove, making it a stunning location to learn to paddleboard or glide through the crystal clear Devon Sea!
With over a decade of experience and 4 centres across the South coast, Wesup's industry-leading teaching methods and passionate delivery of SUP experiences set them apart. If you lack a little self-confidence, are nervous in the water or have anything else holding you back, don’t worry! Our super friendly and encouraging instructors will ensure your experience with us is everything that you are looking for.
Hire sessions start from £17.50 per person per hour. Lessons start from £25.00 per person. Tours start from £45 per person.
If you are interested in river paddling and guided tours, we also have a second location in Galmpton, Wesup Dartside Quay. Click here to find out more.
WHAT WE OFFER
Paddle board hire at Wesup is more than just a grab and go experience. Everyone is offered core safety information and basic instructional advice to ensure they maintain their personal safety before they head out onto the water. Think of this as an independent learning or adventure experience in one of Torbay's most beautiful spots!
Our Paddleboard lessons range from taster sessions for those who are looking for a little guidance to 1-2-1 lessons that can be tailored to specific goals. We have perfected our teaching methods over the last decade and can promise you a fun, dynamic and successful experience that moves at your pace. Whether you’re a total beginner or improver paddler, our paddle board lessons will help you from the ground up to ensure you gain the skills you’re looking for.
Our sit-on-top kayaks are incredibly stable, impossible to sink, easy to master and available as singles or doubles if you’d rather share the experience in tandem. Simply slip on a buoyancy aid, grab your paddle and glide across the sea, exploring the natural reefs and kelp forests. A fantastic way to experience a sense of mindful relaxation and make memories with family and friends.
Sunrise is without question the most enchanting moment of the day. The warmth of the light that floods the new day fills your heart and creates an indescribable sense of purpose and connection to your inner world. It’s a supremely nourishing and rich experience that is both addictive and fulfilling. Experience panoramic views of Torbay before the world wakes up with this totally unique experience.
