Standup Paddleboarding

If you have your own equipment, then there are lots of great paddle boarding spots along the coast if you are confident. If you are looking for a nice stretch of flat water, take a look at Cardiff International Whitewater Rafting Centre and access the River Ely and Cardiff Bay.

If you want to rent equipment or get some lessons, we can highly recommend Island SUP in Barry.
