Sure, we can introduce you to the ABC's of SUP, but SUPFitness offerS a whole lot more too. Once we’ve taken you step by step through all the basics of SUPing, we can also offer expert advice before technical & expensive equipment purchases, and can provide the best information of SUP locations & events around the world!
SUPING IS FOR EVERYONE
Everyone is capable of stand up paddle boarding, and it can be done on almost any body of water.
Learning to standup paddle board is easy and mostly everyone can start paddling in just a few minutes. It doesn’t take much to get started, just a little helpful advice and some basic equipment then you’re ready to start paddling.
The reason so many people are drawn to paddleboarding is that it’s an amazing full-body workout that improves your core strength, cardio fitness, balance, and flexibility with virtually no impact. Plus, it’s fun to get out on the water and enjoy nature, so it hardly feels like exercise.

These guys were awesome. I booked my SUP rental very last minute online, jetted over to Emmarentia, picked up my board and was in the water within minutes! They were friendly, knowledgeable, and happy to help in any way they could!
I highly recommend them!
As a first time stand up paddle boarder, SUPFitness was a wonderful experience! Despite the wind blowing, Chris made sure my experience was fantastic. The lesson was incredibly well planned and delivered. After my first lesson, I am officially addicted to SUP!
These guys have 5 star reviews from everyone for a reason!
Whether you just want to get your feet wet, conquer big ocean waves, or make some new friends and join a community of fun and active folks who venture out on paddling adventures, you're bound to find whatever you're looking for here.
I just bought my second wave SUP from Chris/ Starboard. I had no clue of what to look for in a SUP wave board. They showed me every option available and let me demo multiple boards multiple times. Their staff is extremely friendly and knowledgable. Whether you are looking to rent, buy or take lessons this is the place to go if you want superior service. They are definitely one of Johannesburgs's best stops. If you haven't gone yet GO! You won't regret it.
