Stand-up paddle boarding
Dorset is famed for it's stunning coastline and surfing hotspots, which is why we've partnered up with Bournemouth Surf Academy to bring stand-up paddle boarding (SUPing) and Surf tasters to AUB. We'll be holding discounted taster sessions so you can try SUPing or surfing with all the equipment provided and under the watchful eye of a trained instructor. Keep an eye on this!
How do I purchase the passport?
From our tickets page here.
What do I get for £50?
You get 5 sessions. You will have use of a SUP board or surfboard and wetsuit hire is included. Please note that the passport is non-refundable, so be sure this is suitable for you!
When does the passport expire?
One year from the day you purchase it so there will be plenty of opportunities to get there in good weather.
Who do I contact?
Terry and the team are on site to guide you and it's a popular place for fellow surfers, so you are bound to bump into some of the regulars. You are able to contact them through their FB page
Where is Bournemouth Surf Academy?
At YellowStones Beach House, 9 Kerley Road, Bournemouth, BH2 5DW. Head west of the Bournemouth Pier towards towards West Cliff. Parking is limited on site, we suggest to call in advance. Otherwise, there is free parking with restrictions in the local neighbourhood.
What do I bring with me?
Wetsuits are available for you to use, but if you own one, even better, take it with you. There are changing and toilet facilities on site. Bring a towel, change of clothes, a snack, water and leave any valuables at home as currently, the house may not be open due to to Covid-19 restrictions.
Anything else I need to know?
When you purchase the £50 passport, you will be added to the AUB Sup'n'Surf group on FB to meet other students and get updates. You can call Terry directly who is happy to liaise with you and advise on weather reports to get out in the water.
Terry and the team will be informed that you intend to visit, so you won't be a stranger there.
Again, remember the passport is non-refundable, so please have a think before purchasing..
Before your visit...

If you've already done the Give it a Go SUP sessions and need something more, or if you're already a pro with a board, then join the AUB Surf Club for regular surfing trips with other students.
Membership for the Surf Club costs just £35 for the year, and gives you access to all of their surf trips/excursions, as well as the opportunity to compete on behalf of AUB in surf competitions. It's a great way to meet new people, get active, and make the most of our beautiful coast. (This year they'll be running Surf training sessions so if you're a complete beginner they'll be able to get you up and surfng in no time!)
