Join the SUPKids Programme

Child stand up paddleboarding

The SUPKids program is designed to teach kids SUP, water safety and environmental education. It is run in an inclusive, non-competitive environment with a real focus on building self-esteem. They've taken environmental education out of the classroom, to the great outdoors.

An estimated 12 million tonnes of plastic flows into our oceans each year



  • Engages a diverse range of children with their environment
