We are Jay and Zoe, based in Essex, both SUP fanatics and the founders of ‘wot-sup’!!
Having spent the best part of our adult lives being avid water fans, into scuba diving, surfing and paddle boarding, we began our 'wot-sup' journey in 2019.
Like many people, when 2020 hit, paddleboarding became our way of getting out in a world where we were asked to stay in, and throughout that year we got in as many SUP adventures as we could; local rivers, lakes and the sea, we had beautiful days sightseeing along Cambridge’s River Cam ( Click Here to see the video ) and we took a road trip down to Newquay and SUP’ed the surf on Fistral Beach.
To document our adventures we launched wot_sup on Instagram and on entering 2021, still in lockdown and hungry for something more, we began to talk about how we would like SUP to become a lifestyle change for us.
We wanted to push our own boundaries of something we had previously just enjoyed recreationally. SUP had got us through some really tough times...and we wanted others to benefit from that too :)
We wanted to teach people the physical and mental benefits of paddle boarding and how, where and when to paddle correctly and safely! We wanted people to join ‘wot-sup’ the social group, for fun, enjoyable paddles, of an evening, after work or of a weekend! We wanted people to follow our ‘wot-sup’ adventures where we hoped to provide inspiration for others or create opportunities for people from different regions to cross paths, new places and create lasting memories. And so a BSUPA Instructor course and many months of teaching throughout 2021 later, and our dream has become a reality!!
We look forward to having as many people ‘on board’ as we can, as our journey continues...
Zoe & Jay :)
I live in Essex not far from Wot-Sup HQ in North Fambridge! I found the world of sup when I went for a walk during lockdown and see someone enjoying life on the water... it didn't take me long to think this is the life I want, so there I was overlooking a sunset on Osea Island ordering my SUP ready for my new life!
I met Jay & Zoe though a mutual friend who invited me out to a Wot-Sup social in April 2022 and wow did my life change!! I have lived on the water since that day, exploring so many new places and meeting lots of lovely people along the way who share the same love for SUP and adventures. What better way to look after your physical and mental health than enjoying life with friends around you and finding new adventures!
I am really excited to be part of the Wot-Sup team, I look forward to seeing you all and please don't be shy in saying hi. Bring on the exciting times ahead!!
