Hi fellow SUP Chicks and Blokes!
Thanks for visiting. I’ve created this site to share what I’ve discovered about Stand Up Paddle Boarding in Scotland. Having moved here from Australia I was interested in finding the best places to SUP but discovered that there wasn’t that much information out there. So after finally deciding on a board (an inflatable Fatstick Pink Panther* for me and a Fatstick Blue Lagoon* for my SUP Bloke) I am setting about to create a place where people can come to find out more about Paddleboarding, where to go and what to expect. With so many lochs, rivers, canals and an undulating coastline which hides beautiful secluded calm sandy bays, I really believe Scotland to be a SUPers paradise! I am also including experiences throughout Europe and the rest of the UK and some of my favourite spots back home in Queensland, Australia. I share what I have learned along my SUP journey my top tips on board maintenance, storage, repair along with flying with your board and great holiday destinations so stay tuned!
I’ve tried to keep the format fairly simple and straightforward as I tend to get off topic so each location post is separated into two sections depending on the depth of information you want.
In a hurry? The “Main Points” are a list of dot points that cover the details of the location in a snapshot.
Want more? Scroll down each post to the “Wee Blether” (Scottish for a ‘small chat’) for a better insight to the location.
Feel free to share any information about locations and experiences you might have through our social media links in the menu above. Join our email list by entering your details in the side bar to get each new post straight to your inbox and let’s grow the SUP community.
*Please note you may notice the boards we own have recently been updated with new models if you checkout the Fatstick website. I’d also like to make mention of that fact that we did purchase the boards and while we love them, we weren’t paid to say so!
