Paddle To The Pub

If you’d like to make new friends while learning to SUP, come and join us for a SUP intro course and easy paddle to NZ’s oldest Riverside Tavern, The Riverhead.

Paddle To The Pub

The Riverhead has been offering a friendly pint for 150 years to fishermen and farmers, smugglers and clergymen, marauding riders, and plenty of the local constabulary. Come and experience a memorable afternoon of making new friends, while doing something a little different.

You’ll be in safe hands with a team of qualified instructors and, being you’ll be carried along by the tide, you’ll enjoy this gorgeous introduction to the joy of going with the flow. 

 Expect a lovely afternoon, suitable for all levels of SUP and ideal for anyone who’d like to make new friends while doing something a little different.
