Fun, easy and scenic, the BEST way to explore Port Fairy’s river and beaches!

SUP is the latest surfing phenomenon, adding a whole new dimension to riding waves and exploring our great coastline. With a fun, low impact, ‘all-body’ workout, stand up paddleboarding has plenty of people (including our top surfers) learning a whole new way to play in the ocean. It’s the fastest-growing watersport in the world!
Our packages allow you to progress from flat water SUP to the thrill of riding waves. We have a brilliant natural course that starts out in flat water and progresses through to a sheltered beach with small waves, over a leisurely two hours. It’s easier than you might think and is hugely popular with all the mums!
GO Surf School is an accredited Surfing Australia Stand Up Paddleboarding School. Best of all we operate on one of the best, prettiest (and safest) rivers and beaches anywhere in Australia.

Port Fairy’s beautiful protected East Beach is the perfect place to learn the basics of Stand Up Paddleboarding.

If you or your kids are wanting to try stand up paddle boarding for the first time in a fun, safe environment, this is the lesson for you!

Introduction to SUP lessons are conducted in the sheltered corner of Little East Beach, using soft beginner boards which are lightweight and safe. Meet on Port Fairy’s East Beach at Battery Lane, end of Griffiths St.

What’s provided?

Our equipment is the best available on the market and produced specifically for the Stand Up Paddleboarding industry. We use soft, stable boards that are easy to balance, paddle, stand and surf on for beginners. Warm, full-length wetsuits are available if you want to wear one, and coloured rash vests easily identify participants in the water. We also have life vests available. (Please notify us 24 hours in advance if kids’ wetsuits are required).

What to bring

SUP paddlers need to wear a swimsuit, boardies or wetsuit and sunscreen, bring a towel, and leave your best sunnies at home – they sink!  Don’t forget a camera to document the fun you’ll have.


Hiring SUP’s in Port Fairy is fun for the whole family. You can share them around so everyone can have a go and even take the smaller kids for a ride on the front of the board. Our boards are stable, soft beginner SUP’s suitable for everyone. Minimum hire is 2 x SUP’s for 2hrs.
