Wittering SUP is run by James Wittering and Alex Walker. Our aim is to make stand-up paddle boarding as accessible as possible whilst following our philosophy of helping folks escape the noise of modern life, reconnect with nature and loved ones whilst learning a new, confidence building skill that you can take with you on all your travels and adventures. Learn to paddleboard (SUP) with our paddleboard lessons and join us for a tour of the beautiful River Avon where we are based in Evesham, Worcestershire.
“Although I first learned to SUP in San Sebastien in Northern Spain over 7 years ago, I fell in love with the sport touring the River Wye in Wales on a paddleboard.
I desperately wanted to find a way to share the excitement of the world’s fastest growing water sport with as many people as possible and this lead me to become a qualified ASI (Academy of Surf Instructors) SUP Instructor and we are now the only British Canoeing Quality Mark Centre & Accredited ASI SUP School in the UK.
I love how this super accessible activity is as tranquil as it is fun and whilst it disconnects us from screens, urban life and our busy day to day stresses, it reconnects us with our friends and families, the natural world and even ourselves.
The best thing about my job? Seeing people rise in confidence as they go from afraid to falling in love with SUP; I love seeing people figure out that they are so much more capable than they think they are. And the otters! I get to see otters quite a lot!” James Wittering
