Naish is a name synonymous with performance watersports. From Windsurfing to Paddleboarding, Naish are World leaders and Champions across. Led by Robbie Naish and with a team of professional watersports athletes, Naish have a well deserved reputation as designers and constructors of some of the finest watersports equipment in the World, most notable of which is the high performance Naish Maliko.
While we take time and care in preparing a range of SUP and paddle reviews, we understand that purchasing a paddle board is something that most would like to consider and test for themselves. Our Naish Paddleboard Demo Centre gives you the opportunity to test a selection of models back to back at our premises on the River Itchen as well as our lake. This way you can make an informed, real decision and find the paddle board and paddle package that is best for you.

The SUP Company Test Centre works by offering one hour slots which you can book any day of the week between 1000 – 1600hrs (last booking is 1500hrs).
During your time you can try up to three different paddle boards and three different SUP paddles.
We do make a small charge of £25 per person (payable at the time of booking) for your hour, however this is 100% refundable should you go on to purchase a paddle board from ourselves.
Also prior to letting you out on the water, we will need to see a recognised form of photo id such as a driver’s license or passport.
Simply make your booking request with at least 24 hours notice by phone on 02380 172189 or firstname.lastname@example.org and list which boards and paddles you would like to try. We will then be able to confirm availability and make your booking for you.
We will then send you an email to confirm your booking along with directions and details for parking.
Please note that demand is very high at weekends, so we highly recommend making your booking as soon as possible.
