Stand up paddleboarding is quite simply the fastest growing watersport in the world over the last few years and until you give it a go you may struggle to understand why. Why stand on a massive surfboard and paddle it around? Flat water SUP is very accessible to anyone. The boards come in different sizes and widths to suit any size rider. We use long, wide boards as they are great for beginners on flat water, these boards glide through the water smoothly (less wind the better) giving a stable comfortable ride that's extremely enjoyable. Standing up means you see alot more, paddling and looking down you can see through the water (fish, seaweed, crabs, bottom etc.) as well as around. What do I need to bring? We will provide you with all the necessary equipment including Stand up paddle boards, paddles, wetsuits, buoyancy aids and safety equipment. All you need to bring is a towel, swimming togs/shorts, an old pair of shoes you don’t mind getting wet and a sense of adventure. How much does it cost? 1-7 pax it’s €50 for an adult and €40 for a child If you have any questions, we can answer those through GetMyBoat’s messaging platform before you pay. Just hit, “Request to Book” and send us an inquiry for a custom offer.

After finishing school she decided to head off to the French Alps for the summer and this is where she developed a real sense for adventure. Upon returning home she went on to study Bicton College in Devon, South West England where she completed her training in Outdoor Education Since then she has worked all over the world leading walking expeditions in Africa, sea kayaking tours in Australia, climbing expeditions in Spain and river trips in France. She arrived in Ireland in 2003 and has worked for numerous outdoor adventure companies within Connemara. After falling in love with the area, its people and the potential for outdoor activities, she decided to settle here and begin Real Adventures.
