Ohana – means family
Stand up paddle boarding may have originated in tropical Hawaiian waters, but it has made a home on Sydney’s harbour with WATSSUP!
Watsons Bay Stand Up Paddling (WATSSUP) is Stand Up Paddle School, located in the heart of Sydney harbour at Watsons Bay (only a 15 minute drive or 20 minute ferry ride) from the Sydney City Centre.
WATSSUP is the brainchild of two water crazy, ocean loving enthusiasts: Bondi Rescue’s Lifeguard Terry McDermott and resident Mermaid Joanna Kyriazakos. Between them, Joanna and Terry have thousands of hours of experience in competing, instructing and coaching in aquatic environments, from flat water to open ocean.
At WATSSUP the ocean is our gymnasium! We strongly believe that stand up paddle boarding is a great way to maintain an active, fit and healthy lifestyle. It is a place to learn new skills, train hard, get fit and also a place to meet like-minded people and have fun!
WHY WE LOVE STAND UP PADDLE BOARDING
“We love to share our years of knowledge, expertise, love and passion for stand up paddle boarding with each and every person who comes to stand up paddle board with us. We aim to inspire and introduce those of you who have never SUPed before to all of the benefits (physical, emotional, spiritual & mental) of the sport. As well as providing experienced SUPers with technique and skill based support, challenging workouts and amazing tours of one of Sydney’s best-kept secret beaches – Watsons Bay and all of its surrounding beauties.” – Joanna and Terry
