Emergency medical expenses and repatriation which may be required as a result of an SUP accident are covered, as is personal liability plus any search and rescue fees that might follow an accident on the water.

If you are staying at home in the UK to do some stand up paddle boarding and not heading abroad, Sports Accident Insurance is for you.
Shoulder and back injuries can blight regular paddle boarders, and while we all like to think it won’t happen to us, injuries can be serious. With Income Protection, our policies mean that you can safeguard your normal earnings in the event an SUP accident deems you unable to work.
Other benefits for this policy include personal liability, broken bone cover and physiotherapy fees. If you are a regular participant, or are just paddle boarding as a one-off, get a quote and instant cover below.
Why Do I Need Stand Up Paddleboarding Insurance?
When heading to foreign waters, it’s important to know you are covered. However, without adequate stand up paddleboarding insurance in place you could be entering waters unprotected.
With our Sports Travel Insurance, you are covered for standard travel insurance as well as protected for your SUP with the below benefits;
- Cover for your equipment or that which is hired to you during your trip in case of damage, delayed, lost or stolen up to £5,600.
- If you are injured and require medical treatment, the bill will be picked up by your insurance policy. Should you need to be repatriated back home, or if search and rescue teams are called, the costs will be handled by your policy.
- As with standard travel insurance you are also covered if you have to cancel or cut short a holiday abroad, or if your flight’s delayed or your baggage fails to arrive at your destination, your policy could repay the costs.
- Personal liability covering your legal liability resulting from accidents causing death, bodily injury or property damage to a third party.
- Discounts for couples, families and group policies.
HOW DOES SUP INSURANCE PROTECT ME?
Stand up Paddleboarding or SUP for short is an offshoot of surfing, the rider with SUP uses a paddle to propel the board through the water. Surfing isn’t the only option when doing SUP, people race on their boards or they travel long distances along a coast.
We are able to offer insurance for stand up paddleboarders in the UK and abroad. For those SUP at home, our Sports Accident Insurance policy can provide you with cover in the event of accidental injury and legal liability.
If you already have general travel insurance and just need additional cover for your stand up paddleboarding, then our Activity TopUp policy can cover you alongside your travel insurance.
Does standard travel insurance cover SUP?
SUP is listed as one of our lower risk sports group. You would need to check with the travel insurance company directly as they don’t normally pay out for accidents during so-called adventure sports unless additional cover is taken out. So, if you choose a general travel insurance policy read the small print to make sure stand up paddleboarding is covered by it.
However, if you decide to try something a bit riskier, like black water rafting or shark cage diving, it is very likely those activities to be excluded from an average policy and you will need a specific sports insurance cover. Please check our full list of sports activities here.
Can I take out Stand Up Paddleboarding travel insurance if I have a medical condition?
Yes, medical conditions do not affect the premium. You will need to declare any medical conditions, injuries or treatment within the last two years and this is then referred to the underwriters who will assess any special terms.
Is there a maximum age restriction with your stand up paddleboarding insurance?
You can purchase our Stand Up Paddleboarding insurance online up until 74 years old, above this age you would need to call us on 01494 484800 and we will be able to refer your quote to our underwriters. Please note, our quotes are based on your age at the start date of cover.
