SUP Boarding in Scotland

“The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.” Jacques Yves Cousteau

Stand up paddle boarding is one of the fastest growing watersports in the world.

ACE is passionate about developing the sport of Stand up Paddle boarding (SUP). We offer Paddle boarding lessons, coaching sessions, group trips and private parties the opportunity to experience the fun to be had on a paddle board.
Being one of the first outdoor centres in Scotland to teach Stand up paddle boarding we pride ourselves on the fact that we are able to coach individuals and groups beyond introductory level and introduce them to the broader aspects of the sport. Paddle board surfing, down winding, day touring and multiday expeditions are just some of the great adventures to be had here at ACESUP.

We have an extensive range of boards for all disciplines with brands such as Starboard, Nah Skwell and Rogue. We provide all the equipment required for paddleboarding including wetsuits when needed.

We have amazing venues ideal for beginner sessions, introduction to SUP surfing and down winding.

For those with experience we have a great coastline to explore with hidden coves and caves and an abundance of wildlife. The Clyde coastline and the views over the Ailsa Craig and Arran provide a spectacular backdrop in which to enjoy this great activity.

Being a mobile unit we can also organise expeditions all over Scotland and beyond.

Our experienced and friendly coaches are ASI (Academy of Surf Instructor), BSUPA (British Stand Up Paddleboard Association) and SCA (Scottish Canoe Association) accredited instructors.

ACE will help to keep you on the water by introducing you to other paddle boarders and you can even hire one of our boards until you decide to buy your own.

South West Scotland is one of the best locations in the country to discover this new exhilarating experience. ACE want as many people as possible to enjoy this amazing water sport, so what are you waiting for get in touch and lets see what we can do for you.
