Paddle boarding on the River Teign
Updated: Mar 25, 2021
The perfect way to unwind after a days work is to pump up that board and go for an evenings SUP on the River Teign. You may even get treated to a sunset like this - WOW!
Some of my favourite spots to launch the boards from are The Back Beach - Teignmouth, Polly Steps - Teignmouth, Shaldon (if you can find parking) But my fav has to be The Coombe Cellars, nothing better than enjoying a nice paddle, then after sitting outside and having a nice cold drink and maybe even a bite to eat!
The photo below we launched from Polly Steps (chargeable car park during the day, free after 6)
Don't be fooled by the serene calm waters pictured below, the tides were very strong as the tide was on its way back out to sea. It was quite the work out! Always check the tides!
