2.5 Hour beginner Guided Tour


Thursday July 20th

Starting at 7.00pm

The location is Malpas Slipway, Malpas Village, Truro.

This is a great way to start your Stand up Paddle adventures, spot wildlife and explore Cornwall.  No SUP experience is required all the equipment is provided (but NOT wetsuits) and you will be accompanied by a Guide.  

The Tour 

After a short shore briefing, we'll get you on the boards and help you to find your feet.  Once everyone is in control and smiling we'll head off in search of adventure, looking for wildlife, landmarks and enjoying the stunning backdrop.

We will pick a route that suits the conditions, moving at a pace that suits the group, learning to SUP on the way and taking a break or two.  

The Practical bits

Once the forecast is in the group will be sent further confirmation.  Occasionally we change the location to get the best conditions and this will be done in consultation with you.

The price includes a Guide, Paddle Board kit and a Buoyancy Aid. (NOT a wetsuit)

Photos will be taken on the tour and then be provided to the group.

A dry bag is provided for valuables (though we recommend no electronics), spare clothes, drinks and snacks.


  • Wear a wet suit, even a Shortie is OK at this time of year.  Optional extras if you feel the cold are wetsuit boots and spares a hat or windproof layer. 
  • A drink & snack. 

On the trip the guide will carry a group shelter, first aid kit, flares, mobile phone and some spares.

Map Link to Malpas Slipway

There is some on road parking for free in Malpas village, park tight in as buses often pass, lift sharing is a good idea.  There are public toilets.  For afterwards there is the Heron Inn with beautiful views back over the River for a post paddle debrief and well earned refreshment.
