SUP HIRE THAILAND offers an award winning range of stand up paddleboarding and bicycling experiences from our base in Kanchanaburi. SUP lessons (in Thailand aka “supboard” “or supboardkanchanaburi”), bicycle hire and activities, sightsee, learn 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. พายซับบอร์ดกาญจนบุรี

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.

Any sized group; all ages; duration 1.5 hours – 4 days! We are flexible here at SUPKanchanaburi and can fit the experience to suit your needs.

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 any of our lessons quickly and easily):

– 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 250km 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!
