SUPsect: SUP South Essex Club & Tuition. Stand-up paddleboard school and club, based between Leigh-on-Sea and Chelmsford, Essex.
Having got into the sport in the early days of British SUP, Elisa and Duncan have been teaching stand-up paddleboarding in Essex since 2013 – at Paper Mill Lock on the River Chelmer (east of Chelmsford) since 2014, and at Two Tree Island, Leigh-on-Sea, the previous year. You might well have seen our yellow VW campervan wherever there are paddleboarders! The husband and wife team are both BSUPA Level 2 (Race & Tour) advanced qualified instructors and have successfully taught over 650 people how to SUP over the years. SUPsect is an official BSUPA school, but we also run Essex’s biggest and longest established SUP Club every Wednesday evening throughout British Summer Time – out and about at various locations all over South Essex from Hullbridge to Hoe Mill Lock, Chalkwell to Shoebury…
Formerly El and Dunc ran both the school and club in the name of a boardsports store who rented us the school kit, but in order to operate more effectively from late 2017 we went fully independent and rebranded our paddleboard school and club to SUPsect: Stand-Up Paddle South Essex Club & Tuition.

Most importantly of all, SUPsect is primarily about a like-minded bunch of paddlers getting together on Wednesday evenings (and more!) at our free SUP Club – and it’s the people that come to SUP Club that make our paddles fun. We try and reflect that in our social media on Facebook @SUPsect, Instagram @SUPsectUKand Twitter @SUPsectUK
