Dublin Stand up Paddle Boarding Stag Do Activity
Dublin Stand up Paddle Boarding Stag Do Activity with Pop the Fizz.
Stand Up Paddling or SUP an awesome Dublin Stag Do Activity, and we love it.
It’s the fastest growing water sport in the world and we know why. It’s ease of learning and great core workout attracts water enthusiasts of all types. Stand Up Paddling or SUP is part paddling, part balancing, part surfing. On flat water, you can cruise and glide while touring the local sites. On small swells, you can easily paddle into and ride the waves. You can also take your Stand Up Paddleboard and put a windsurf sail on it – come on that’s amazing!
The Academy of Surfing Instructors (ASI) accredits our Water Sports centre as an approved SUP school. Our staff holds the relevant qualifications in SUP and we adhere to strict safety guidelines and procedures as set out by the ASI. We also have our own safety guidelines and procedures in place; we provide a safe and fun environment in which to take part in our Dublin Stag Do activities.
Our coastline was designed for SUP. We have islands off Skerries that love to be explored. We have golden sandy beaches all around us, which provide the ideal location for SUPing. The local wildlife boasts the largest colony of Roseate Terns in Europe; along with many other species of birds we also have common seals around the harbor.
The pier in Skerries is the only west facing pier on the east coast and affords beautiful sunsets over the water which is a real treat for those nice evening paddles in summer months.
We supply all equipment for lessons including wetsuits and buoyancy aids.
