About

Wesup has teamed up with the RNLI to host an epic World Record Charity Fundraiser as part of their National Water Safety Campaign. The ambition… To have 1000 paddle boarders taking part in the largest guided coastal tour in the world to raise critical awareness of SUP safety, to raise vital funds for the RNLI Torbay Lifeboats and to inspire a generation of people to safely connect to their coastal environment. 

This event will also be the largest ocean cleanup event by SUP. We’ve teamed up with Planet Patrol to collect all ocean litter on route and hand it over at the destination for the team to collect, sort and recycle, making this a huge win for the environment!

Tickets are just £15 from any location and 100% of profits will be donated to RNLI.

So how will The Great Big Paddle Parade work and how do you get involved?

Think of The Great Big Paddle Parade as an epic guided coastal tour. Choose from one of 6 starting locations based on the distance you can paddle and enjoy a breathtaking cruise along the world heritage, UNESCO Global Geopark coastline of the English Riviera.

Led by Wesup’s most senior SUP instructors, you will pick up the groups at each location until all One Thousand paddle boarders end up gliding into the beautifully secluded bay of Fishcombe Cove for the official adjudication and one epic aerial photo! The groups will then be guided back to their original starting location… For some this will be an epic full day adventure on the water!

Locations offer paddles with total distances (there and back) of between 2km to 20km, giving paddlers of all fitness ability the opportunity to join us on this truly special event. To be totally clear, paddlers will be encouraged to select the location from which they are able to paddle there and back. This is for reasons to do with safety, parking logistics and personal experience.

We’re raising money for charity… Challenge yourself in the safety of the RNLI’s boat support with this beautiful and epic adventure event!
