    Hi, looking to get into SUP in Galway, just bought my own board and wondering where is good to go - apart from the obvious Salthill?


  • Hi, just getting into SUP and also based in Galway, You find any good spots?

  • Hi Martin,

    I went out to Rusheen Bay which was fine, grand if you're not too confident in water as its very shallow but pretty small. I reckon we could go out from the Rowing club down in the college or even from the small jetty down form the running track in Dangan. AnNd obviously a calm day in Salthill, Silverstrand or Barna.

    Are you around at the weekend, would you like to meet up and try out somewhere?


  • Hi guys, i recently got myself a paddle board in galway as well, i was out at bearna strand yesterday but it was a bit choppy, anywhere else you would recommend around galway to go out, or if your ever heading out as well be good to go out with someone else as well.

  • Hey there,
    Im planning on buying a board this week, if anyone is interested in meeting up to go paddling please pm me!


  • Hi all.
    Im getting a SUP board in the next week or so. Are there any groups that go out in Galway?

  • Anyone else fairly knew to SUP in Galway know of any other good spots to go or that would like to meet up for a paddle?

  • I am usually going to Rinvill or Loughrea if anyone interested on Monday evening at around 7pm. I swap every week, I am still learning and looking for a good wide paddle board which is more relaxing. 10'X34"x6" which has great stability but find hard to get a similar one.
