You can take a stand-up paddle board tour through the city this weekend

And no finer weekend for it!

With the weather set to be absolutely scorching this weekend, many of us will be rushing to get outdoors for some fun in the sun. If the beach just isn’t your thing, then you might fancy chancing your arm at stand-up paddle boarding. But what exactly is it, you ask?

Basically, stand-up paddle boarding (SUP) is a water sport where paddlers stand on a large, stable board and use a paddle to propel themselves forward. It’s a versatile activity enjoyed on various bodies of water, providing a full-body workout and improving balance. SUP offers serene paddling on calm waters and can also be an adventurous ride on waves or strong currents.

The tour will embark from The Lee Fields

As part of the Cork Harbour Festival, ‘SUP in the City’ will be providing introductory SUP lessons this bank holiday weekend and it promises to be a fun-filled afternoon. Departing from the Lee Fields, participants will learn the basics of how to use the stand-up paddle board whilst embarking on a peaceful and serene tour through the Lee Fields and all the way into the city.

All equipment and instruction are included in the lesson and their friendly and experienced instructors will look after all of your learning needs on the board. Prices start at €15 per person and the tours start from 11am. For more info and to book your slot, head over to the Cork Harbour Festival website here.
