SUP-FIT and our instructors acknowledge the First People, the Traditional Owners, and Custodians of our two bays and the Mornington Peninsula, The Boon Wurrung. Their culture, connection to land, and care for the shores on which we gather and the waters on which we paddle are many thousands of years old.

SUP-FIT is our passion as well as our business, we love sharing our knowledge of the water, our enjoyment of stand-up paddling, our love of nature and fitness with all the people who come and paddle with us. We aim to inspire people to connect to nature, take on a physical challenge, and most importantly have FUN. Stand-up paddling is a sport for everyone and anyone who loves life and making the most of it.

We are the only SUP school on the Mornington Peninsula whose instructors are accredited with both the Academy of Surfing Instructors and Surfing Australia.

In the current COVID-19 crisis SUP-FIT  will continue to offer some SUP sessions with additional protocols relating to group size, the distance between paddlers on the beach, and cleaning of equipment.


Mark Renouf – Director/Head SUP Coach and Instructor

After many years of primary school teaching and then 14 years as a school principal, Mark made the decision to continue his passion for providing people with learning opportunities to further develop their fitness, enjoyment for the outdoors, health and wellbeing by becoming a SUP Instructor

“Stand Up Paddleboarding has been a natural progression for me in my love of the ocean and water sports like surfing, kayaking, swimming, and sailing. SUP has given me a huge amount of pleasure and fun, increased my fitness and physical strength, and my whole sense of health and wellbeing. SUP has also provided me with an avenue to share my passion for water sports with my career as an educator.”
