Seacliff is a beautiful location. The beaches are wide, with white, soft sand.  The water is protected and smooth making it ideal to learn to SUP.   There are also places that offer more challenges in the exposed waters and there are ideal downwind locations for the more advanced.  

The water is full of wildlife and you often see dolphins, stingrays and a range of other marine creatures playing alongside you as you paddle along.
