About Us

Bombora Ettalong Beach SUP is owned and operated by Karl Herman. He holds ASI Level 1 and Level 2 SUP Instructor accreditation for Enclosed Flat Water and Exposed Waters locations, water rescue and first aid qualifications.   Karl also holds a Certificate IV in Fitness and is assisted in the SUP school with experienced and accredited SUP instructors.  He has been Stand Up Paddle Boarding since 2007, prior to this he was windsurfing and competitively raced mountain bikes and Catamarans.


Karl decided to get into SUP for something to do when there wasn’t enough wind for sailing and very quickly got hooked due to the ease of use and the benefit of being able to use them in just about any condition imaginable.

Karl is passionate about Stand Up Paddle Boarding and he wants to share his love of the sport so he goes out of his way to make sure that each experience is a positive one.

Ettalong SUP offers group and private SUP lessons, certificate courses, SUP tours, social paddles and fitness workouts for kids, adults, parties, school groups, backpackers, universities and corporate and have paddleboards and accessories for sale.  We also offer Personal Training and Fitness coaching.

Ettalong SUP is lucky to be able to offer a perfect location for Stand up paddleboarding with safe sheltered waters for beginners with beautiful natural scenery of  Brisbane Waters and the rugged hinterland mountains.

Our Ettalong site is perfect for those who like to get off the board for a swim as the water is crystal clear with a beautiful sandy bottom, it’s only a short walk from the Palm Beach ferry terminal allowing easy access for Sydneysiders or those wishing to take an enjoyable ferry cruise after.  As Ettalong is a major tourist area on the Central Coast there is plenty to see and do all within a short stroll including coffee shops, cinemas, the Mantra Resort and the famous Ettalong Markets.

These testimonials from some of  Ettalong SUP satisfied customers speak for themselves:


“Karl taught me and my wife how to SUP, it was awesome I highly recommend it”.


“Karl taught me and my kids how to SUP last summer. He was patient with the kids, and me (who was probably more chicken than the kids to start

with) and we all had a great time and learnt some skills!”


“Karl offers relaxed SUP lessons. A very knowledgeable and friendly guy”.
