Salcombe Paddleboarding offer lessons, estuary tours and equipment hire from their stunning spot at Port Waterhouse in East Portlemouth, Salcombe.
Up the creeks with Salcombe Paddleboarding
If there is one thing that paddleboarders try to avoid, it’s strong winds. ‘As soon as you stand up on a paddleboard, your body acts like a sail – you’re going to go wherever the wind pushes you,’ says Marcus Nolan, founder of Salcombe Paddleboarding.
This is one thing you won’t have to worry about with this exciting venture based at Port Waterhouse in East Portlemouth. ‘We’re really sheltered here for the very best in paddle boarding experiences,’ says Marcus. ‘We also have the advantage of ample parking onsite. Alternatively, you can walk to us from the East Portlemouth ferry landing in under 10 minutes’ he adds.
This is only part of what makes Salcombe Paddleboarding truly unique. As the only paddleboarding specialists operating on the East Portlemouth side of the water and they are perfectly positioned to take advantage of the extremely sheltered conditions here – they really are in the ideal spot. With over ten years’ local lifeguarding experience, Marcus knows all the nearby sheltered and hidden inlets, creeks and beaches like the backs of his hand. Many of them are only accessible by water.
Lessons and tours
Predictably, Salcombe paddleboarding's lessons and customised estuary tours are proving to be very popular indeed. If you’re new to paddle boarding you can book a two-hour group lesson for £40. ‘We do keep the student/instructor ratio low so our customers can get the most out of their experience’ says Marcus. One-to-one lessons are also available at £80 per session, world class kit and everything you need is included in the price.
If you are more experienced, there is also the option to hire the equipment for a leisurely paddle amongst some of the most stunning coastal scenery to be found anywhere in the country.
Great for the kids
At high tide, a series of pontoons create a man-made ‘kiddy pool’ in the Salcombe Estuary – perfect for young children who want to take their first step into the wonderful world of paddleboarding. This is photo heaven for mums and dads, and unforgettable fun for the little ones.
