We hope the video gives you an idea of what is possible (Music: www.bensound.com)

Welcome to our site! Our river base in Kanchanaburi is part of the family SUP Hire (Thailand). We are unsurprisingly in the stand up paddle-boarding (SUP) business. We also offer bicycle rentals and accompanied journeys.

SUP HIRE THAILAND offers a range of paddleboarding and bicycling experiences from our base in Kanchanaburi. Paddle, ride, sightsee, stretch and exercise. Enjoy the activity early in the morning, enjoying the serenity of a fresh new day or come out for an evening sunset paddle, to take advantage of the lower temperatures.

SUPs are ideal for a meditative yet challenging work out.  We pride ourselves on offering a variety of choices to help make your time on the water safe, affordable and fun. Don’t worry, you will be able to stand on the board, providing you are fit to do so.

From our location on the River Kwai we aim to provide the following fun and safe activities, which take you onto various sections of the river (you can book lessons in our SHOP or just email / call us to arrange):

– Taster sessions for people who have never tried stand up paddleboarding and are beginners in the sport

– Early morning / late afternoon / sunset paddle, of approximately 3 hour duration, for participants who want a slightly more challenging experience

Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award supported ‘adventurous journeys’ – expeditions of up to 120km length along the River Kwai Yai or Kwai Noi

Bespoke individual or group experiences according to the individual requirements and needs of our customers

SUP board hire (without instructor present) for people who are confident and expert paddlers

Bicycle hire and accompanied journeys in Kanchanaburi.

We also have a large fleet of bicycles. These are well-maintained 9-Speed or 6-Speed hybrid bikes. Good quality bikes, so you can tour the local area and beyond. Take the train from Bangkok and pick up your bike from our base, ready to go!

Tim Urwin (Head of Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award – Bromsgrove International School, Bangkok). January, 2019

“SUP Hire Thailand could not have been more flexible and accommodating.”

Kris Meadows (Head of Year Bangkok Patana). November 2918

“From start to finish the dealings with Troy and everyone at SUP Hire Thailand were outstanding.”

Matthew Farthing  (Principal Nord Anglia International School Dubai)

“In all that he does Troy ensures a positive experience for students and staff alike always putting health and safety in first place and modelling a meticulous approach to planning. His follow up is equally impressive as he uses reflection and review to continually upgrade and to improve.”

Richard Noble (Teacher at Harrow International School Bangkok)
“I would say that he has a thorough understanding of how to conduct a challenging, fun, worthwhile and above all safe experience for international school students with regard to the Duke of Edinburgh International Award. I would unhesitatingly recommend schools use SUP Hire (Thailand) for this type of adventurous journey.”

Alistair Marshall (Head of Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award at Harrow International School Bangkok)

“Troy and Hojeong are meticulous about safety and this was evident from the first stages of planning right through to the last meal of the expedition. Our students loved their Gold Expedition and we will most certainly continue to use this excellent service provider.”

Our chief instructors have had the very best training from The Waterskills Academy and are proud to hold current membership.
