Awarded 'Experience of The Year 22/23' at the Visit Worcestershire Tourism Awards, Wittering SUP is a family run ASI accredited SUP school based on the River Avon at the Arden Sailing Club in Defford , (A secluded venue surrounded by nature with private parking, changing rooms and hot showers) near Pershore and Evesham in Worcestershire, run by James & 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*: For us, SUP is more than just a fun, water-based activity. It's also a mindful way to nourish your mental health; it's eco-therapy. Everything we do is flavoured with our passion for supporting mental health.
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 :)

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.
