Welcome to Sussex Inlet Stand Up Paddle an ASI accredited Stand Up Paddle School.
Sussex Inlet is a quiet coastal town located about 2.5 hrs drive south of Sydney and is a much loved holiday destination for both Australian and international travellers.
All our instructors are highly experienced ASI accredited and not forgetting super enthusiastic and passionate stand up paddleboarders with an abundance of knowledge to share with you. Madeline, Skyla, Lisa & Amy regularly compete at State & National levels in the Stand Up Paddle world with fantastic results in SUP Surfing, SUP Technical & SUP Marathon disciplines.
Owner-Operator Madeline Rayner started paddleboarding in 2009 and before long was hooked. Being family of surfers, paddleboarding was another watersport to enjoy the ocean as a family.
Madeline decided to become a SUP instructor to combine with her career as a Registered Fitness /Pilates Instructor. Fitness classes & sup classes run daily throughout the year and combining both offers so much variety and fun to the local community.
We love to meet new people, share our addiction and offer group and private lessons for all ages and backgrounds. Nothing is better than seeing all our customers on such a high after their paddle and already beginning to plan their next outing on the water.
