Next Meetup

Just over 3 months ago a keen group of local paddlers and walkers rallied together to collect rubbish along the eastern and upper reaches of the Swan River and river banks from Bayswater to Caversham. It was such a great day, we‘ve decided to run the event on a quarterly basis. We’ll be having a BYO BBQ afterwards at Garvey Park and Halina from Western Australian Seabird Rescue will be joining us to talk about the great work they do and explain how we can assist if we come across any birdlife in trouble so please try to come along! The other great news is the new app from Tangaroa Blue that will allow us to log rubbish collected and send the information to the Australian Marine Debris Initiative data base which is vitally important so they can analyse the scale of pollution affecting the rivers and oceans. River Guardians have donated gloves, bags and tongs which can be collected from the SUP Tonic trailer at any sup session prior to the event or at Garvey Park on the day. Hopefully we will have Nauti Picnics with us again cruising up and down the river to help anyone in need of assistance which was an invaluable contribution during our last clean up day. Several launch locations have been set out as outlined below and covers the Eastern corridor. You can do as short or as long as you like however we have limited the time to finish within 2 hours. The locations below are just suggestions so if you’d like to start somewhere else please do. Don’t forget, walkers are welcome and very much needed where paddlers can’t access. As with all events we want to have as much fun as possible! So post up your antics from the day (keep it clean, pardon the pun) and see you all soon! Please go the the webpage link below or find the event on facebook for more information.

    What we're about

    SUP Tonic has evolved from the inspiration and support of some great friends to start a local paddling community group in Perth. The intention of SUP Tonic is to help link people together who want to get out for a paddle but don’t quite know where to go and to encourage paddlers at entry level to get up and about on the water!

    SUP fun is endless. From organised events, tranquil paddles, down winders, yoga, SUP surfing or just make up something completely new and ridiculous!! Encourage your friends and people you meet to have a go! They might just love it too!

    We also have a very proactive facebook page of the same name "Sup Tonic" so please feel free to join as a member and start connecting with other like minded water lovers

    Keep an eye out for updates and don’t forget to share your pics and SUP adventures!
