Stand Up Paddle Board Camp

Stand up paddle boarding (SUP) has boomed in popularity the last few years. We at Livit absolutely see why and love a paddle on the river or even the ocean if the water is flat flat flat. 

Come join us for a stand up paddle specific camp where we will teach you the skills required to paddle safely and confidently. Once we are feeling ready after learning some new skills we will embark on our first paddle board tour- exploring the local rivers or ocean- our instructors will lead the group and will guide you every step of the way.

We will paddle board both days, giving plenty of opportunity to build confidence and progress. The tours are designed to showcase the natural beauty of North Devon so we will take plenty of time to admire our surroundings. 

This camp does exactly what it says on the tin! Zero experience is required, our coaches will have you up and paddling in no time. If you have paddle boarded before and loved it then our coaches will help progress you to the next level. 

We are perfectly situated just a few miles from Westward Ho! beach, we will paddle on the ocean only if the conditions are super flat otherwise mainly we will explore the rivers leading to the ocean. We are super close to some amazing rivers which are perfect for exploring by SUP. 

We will arrange all transport to and from our supping destinations- with all equipment and coaching included. The food will be freshly prepared at camp and ready for when you need it- all of this maximises the time for you to relax, unwind and learn some new skills. Check out the other tabs which outline the itinerary, accommodation layout and extra info.

Whatever your level, this is a camp where you can fit in and have a LOT of fun! You don’t have to have any previous experience just a willing to give it a go!

This is an intimate trip of just 10 guests maximum- although the staff do join in the trip too. Everyone working here at Livit Adventures is a coach in one or more activity, the breakfast chef could well be your SUP coach! Whether you are a solo adventurer, a couple, or in a group you will find our trips to be totally inclusive and super friendly.

As with all our adventure trips this is adults only.

Fun large bell tents for sleeping and relaxing

The Bells

Our bell tents are great! We have 4 bedroom tents each with internal room dividers, although each tent is big enough for 10 people, we like our space, so each will sleep 2-4 people.

Camping beds will be provided but please bring your own bedding and sleeping bags. Please note you may be sharing with someone you don’t know yet if you are flying solo or in an odd numbered group. We will keep groups together as best we can.

The Lounge: A large dome tent; this one has a log burner and is perfectly set up for getting to know each other, relaxing, and after day one…talking about how your day went!

Food will be served from our outdoor kitchen- we will eat outside at the viking table if weather permits- if not we can take it indoors to the dome.
