Stand Up Paddle Boarding

We are really excited to introduce Stand up paddle boarding sessions here at Actif – it’s one of the fastest growing water sports.

Come and try one of the world fastest growing water sports right here in Carmarthenshire. Stand up paddle boarding is such a great and accessible activity for everyone no matter of age, size or ability. 

It’s great that we can add something totally different to our weekly Actif adult timetable and give Carmarthenshire residents a chance to try out different activities right on their doorstep. Best of all we have an instructor on hand every week to help give you all the advice and tips you need.

We are one of the few places that you can come along and give stand up paddle boarding a go where there’s an instructor on hand to help guide you every step of the way.

We deliver the sessions weekly at North Dock Llanelli. No equipment needed as we’ll supply paddle board equipment, life jackets and wetsuits.

You will need to pre book your place which you can either do by downloading our app or visit our website. If you are 60 years old or older you may be interested in our Actif 60+ initiative where you can access all our community based activities like this one and many more for FREE for the first 8 weeks.

Participants must be over the age of 18 years to take part in these sessions; please arrive 15 minutes prior to the session start time to get into wetsuit.
