Good Trails has been running the Paddleboard school in Coppet Hall in Saundersfoot since 2016. Paddleboarding is a fun and enjoyable way of discovering places that are only accessible from the water and it is a sociable sport that can be enjoyed by the whole family, groups, or team members of all abilities.

Saundersfoot is their favourite spot for paddleboarding because it offers a big protected bay that is quite sheltered from most wind directions, especially at high tide. Plus there is a car park and changing facilities with warm and cold shower options as well as a little cafe and a surf shop.

In addition to paddle boarding lessons and rental, Good Trails offer the hire of kayaks, bikes, and a Mega-SUP. The team also offers SUP Safari’s around Saundersfoot and a mini SUP lesson that is specially designed for 8-10-year-old children. The team is an accredited school by WSA and AALA which enables them to run weekly beach safety clubs for children and offer lessons to local schools.
