A Family run SUP school offering stand up paddleboard lessons and adventures on the beautiful river Avon:

Wittering SUP is an ASI accredited SUP school based on the River Avon at the Arden Sailing Club in Defford, near Pershore and Evesham in Worcestershire, run by ASI Technical SUP coach, James Wittering and ASI SUP instructor, yoga teacher and level 2 open water swimming coach, Alex Wittering. We are so lucky to be based close to such beautiful, tranquil waters just a short drive away from Worcester, Birmingham, Stratford-upon-Avon, the Cotswolds and the nearby market towns of Cheltenham and Gloucester, so if you're visiting the area and fancy learning to stand-up paddleboard (SUP) we'd love to hear from you :)

It's all about your wellness, your safety and your experience*:

Our aim is to make stand-up paddleboarding as accessible as possible whilst following our philosophy of helping folks escape the noise of modern life, reconnect with nature and loved ones whilst learning a new, confidence building skill that you can take with you on all your travels and adventures. Our approach is patient, calming and whatever is the exact opposite of stress; everyone is a little nervous doing something new for the first time but our teaching style is designed to help you progress at your speed and ensure you have a blissed out time on the water :)

Committed to excellence:

We are committed to providing best-in-class sup lessons, service and safety for our customers; this is why we have become an ASI accredited SUP school. Our qualifications and experience ensure that our instruction, water safety training and safeguarding skills remain at the very highest industry standards. We teach to the highest technical standards and adhere to a robust water safety protocol.
