SUP NEW FOREST
ABOUT THE CLUB
Welcome to SUP New Forest.
We are a club of friendly SUP paddlers enjoying each others company on regular paddles at locations in or around the New Forest.
We are a not for profit group which is born from the success of the paddles organised by "The New Forest Paddle Sports Company".
The group is focused on adult paddlers however minors can join the paddles subject to supervision by a parent or legal guardian (please ask for details).
Annual Membership will cost £25, although we have a discounted rate of £20 from now until the end of the year (31 March).
Guests £5 per paddle (please ensure any guest has suitable SUP experience to complete the paddle they register to join)
Regular organised paddles in a variety of locations
10% discount off RRP at The New Forest Paddle Sport Company

Once you have become a member you will have access to the Facebook Members Group and website Members Area, where details of all the up and coming paddles will be listed for you to register
Upcoming Club paddles include: Winter fun race 4/4 (23rd February), Lepe to Beaulieu (1st March), Wimborne (8th March)
Registration opens for the Head Of The Dart SUP challenge on Monday 3rd February at 08.00. Places fill up really quickly for this event - about an hour last year!!!! The actual race takes place on Sunday 19th April and it is an excellent event, covering 8 miles through the Dart Valley. It is suitable for those looking for their first SUP challenge or experienced racers hoping to set a PB! Look at their Facebook page or website for more information and some awesome photos from previous events - it would be great to see SUP New Forest represented here again for 2020!
We have introduced some Paddler Guidelines and a Star Rating System for paddles (see the Club Documents area of the website). These have been developed as a result of member and paddle lead feedback, and should help members understand how we can all support each other on paddles, and how to decide which paddles are suitable for their level of experience. We hope you find them helpful!
If you are a member, please register for each paddle on the Member's page of the site (see joining details above), alternatively you can join us as a guest for £5 per paddle (email for more information including times and locations).
If for any reason, you are unable to attend a paddle you have registered for - the easiest way to let us know, is to go back to the members area and select the 'Register Now' and then 'RSVP' section for that paddle, then select 'Un-register'.
We understand that sometimes things crop up at the last minute or traffic affects your travel time, and you may not be able to contact us to let us know - this is why we allow a half hour window between arriving for a paddle and launching. However, for the convenience of all paddlers, we do need to set off at the specified launch time, and cannot wait for latecomers. Thank you for your understanding.
We keep an eye on the weather in the days prior to any paddle and will usually add any warnings or updates to the paddle details on the website. Sometimes it is possible to relocate a paddle, this will usually be added to the website as a 'last minute' paddle - but only members who have registered for a paddle will receive a cancellation email.
