SUPWell is the "Paddle With Us" side of Starboard SUPSNZ, offering quality stand up paddling coaching, programs and events in Auckland.  

Experience the freedom and energy of being able to paddle with confidence and sound technique, as you master the skills and knowledge that will help you maximise your fun on the water. 

As well as the physical benefits of being active, there's now good evidence that being on the water enhances mental wellbeing by reducing stress and anxiety and increasing calm, focus and creativity. Our clients often comment that they feel their whole state of wellbeing change for the better when they push off from the shore. And who doesn't need a bit of mindful exercise these days? 

SUPWell offers classes and programs to help people learn and improve their paddling, be fit on the water, rehabilitate from cancer treatment and explore waterways.  We also offer team building and wellbeing events (Better Teams), Open Days and Paddle For Hope fundraising events.

Join us for a class and find out how SUP can play a role in managing our busy, stressful modern lives.

Currently located in Auckland, New Zealand, but drop us a line if you are interested in becoming a SUPWell coach in your region.
