SUP SCHOOL DOMSTAD organizes LESSONS and TOURS for STAND UP PADDLE (SUP or supping). We don’t rent boards. All activities are under the guidance of a certified instructor (via the Academy of Surfing Instructors, ASI). During a lesson, much attention is paid to safety on the water and the right paddle technique. How to keep your board under control. Once a student has the right technique under control, they can start paying more attention to the surroundings! And of course start to enjoy the fun of supping!

Are you already an EXPERIENCED paddler, you can choose a TECHNIQUE lesson. Or, if you are VISITING UTRECHT, we can make a lovely TOURISTIC TOUR through the canals with our instructor who can tell you all about the history of the canals and the city.

In Stand Up paddle you stand on a surfboard and you move forward with a paddle. Because you stand up, you see a lot more of your surroundings! While paddling you use your entire body, that’s why the sport is seen as a total body workout fitness. The sport is growing greatly and is currently gaining popularity all over the world.
Utrecht is a beautiful city to visit from the water. Fortunately, the city offers many opportunities for them. So you can sailing in a boat or you can rent a kayak. But now you can also explore the charming old town from a SUP board! SUP school Domstad offers tours for experienced paddlers, but also for beginners. In both cases the instructor tells you all about the history of the city. Beginners will get brief paddle intructions on forehand, and make a smaller tour.
