SUP Vic Inc. was established in April 2009. It all started from a few e-mails between some regular Stand Up Paddlers and is now one of the largest SUP club in Australia. Our membership stretches right across Victoria from as far as Portland to Lakes Entrance with the majority based in Melbourne.
We are the only SUP club in Australia that provides it’s members with full public liability insurance at events and any SUP related activity as well as personal accident cover so in the unlikely event of an accident you can be assured you and your family won’t be effected financially. If you live interstate and insurance cover is something that interests you, then join SUP Vic and receive all our standard member benefits.
SUP Vic’s purpose is to develop the sport of stand up paddle boarding throughout Victoria and to encourage participation at all levels, across the various disciplines of the sport, including flat water cruising, fun paddles, surfing, racing, down winding, and new branches of the sport as they emerge. In all its activities, whether social, training and or competitive, SUP VIC endeavours to be wholly inclusive of women, men, children, minority groups and people with special needs and to provide a safe and fun environment for all to enjoy the sport now and well into the future. Furthermore, SUP Vicundertakes to liaise with industry, retailers, government agencies, land managers, like-minded clubs and associations and peak bodies at state and national level, to promote safety, facilitate ‘demo’ days, organise family-friendly events, promote junior development and generally improve the standard of the sport through introductory lessons, training programs, skills and technique coaching and high level competition.
