SUP'n SIP : The Sunbury Surfari
A slightly more challenging SUP'n SIP along a hidden backwater in collaboration with On The River SUP. It will involve a short board carry so one for confident paddlers and limited to 8 places only. We'll be stopping at The Weir Pub for a pint and a bite before heading back to the launch spot.

About the Event
just SUP uk is delighted to be collaborating with Dee and Gareth from On the River SUP who are based on the Thames at Lower Sunbury for this SUP'n SIP event.
This will be a SUP'n SIP with a difference as we will be paddling along a hidden and twisty-turny backwater, navigating fallen trees, shallows and also a short board carry to rejoin the main river Thames downstream. As this is a slightly more 'technical' paddle (in skiing terms it would be a good BLUE/easy RED run!) we are recommending it to those with good board control.
The pub-stop will be at The Weir Pub (where there is easy access to the river bank), followed by an easy upstream paddle back to the launch spot.
Places are also limited to 8 only, so book early.
As always, the overriding theme is to enjoy an evening's paddle with some like-minded paddlers and explore a different stretch of the Thames.
You are welcome to bring your own SUP or hire one from us for the occasion.

- Some parts of the backwater are quite shallow and depending on river level, may involve a short walk to protect board fins. Appropriate footwear is strongly recommeded.
