Stand-up Paddleboarding (SUP) near Birmingham

by Craig Roberts

Stand-up Paddle boarding (SUP) is sweeping the world by storm at the moment. Given that it's such an accessible sport it's easy to see why it's the fastest growing water sport. 

The thing that makes SUP so great (especially for us city dwellers) is that unlike Surfing or Kitesurfing all you need for SUP is a body of water - and there is plenty of that in or around Birmingham! 

Here are our top picks for place to SUP in or around Birmingham ...
