Stand Up Paddle (SUP) is the fastest growing water sport in the world, and it's little wonder why. The low-impact sport encourages general fitness through strength and balance exercise, all while having fun in the water. Better yet, the leisurely sport requires no existing level of skill to be able to have a great time. At Stand Up Paddle HQ we provide lessons, Yarra tours, penguin tours, hire, core fitness classes, equipment sales and advice. We have boards and paddles to match your skill level and instructors who are passionate about SUP and excited to help you learn and master the sport. We operate from two great locations, St Kilda beach (Pier Road), and the boatsheds on Melbourne's Yarra River. All locations are perfect places to learn SUP in a safe, fun and protected environment. At St Kilda you can unwind and enjoy the tranquility paddling amongst the yachts and the sea life including some of St Kilda's 1000 penguins. On the Yarra you can enjoy the panoramic view of Melbourne's best known tourist sites including the MCG, Eureka Tower and Polywoodside, all from a unique location on the water.

My daughter and I took the SUP lessons. The instruction was really great and we were able to paddle to the end of the pier and around the marina within our lesson and first time on SUP. Great value.
