Stand Up Paddle Canberra

Stand Up Paddle Canberra, formerly The SUP’ing Caveman, is a family owned and operated small business. Matthew, along with his wife Lauren, established The SUP’ing Caveman in 2013. 

Matthew Scott - Owner/Head SUP Instructor/Personal Trainer

Matthew gained his Stand Up Paddle Instructor accreditation through the internationally recognised Academy of Surfing Instructors (ASI). Matthew holds Level 1 Enclosed Water, Level 2 Exposed Water, SUP Rescue and Apply First Aid qualification. 

Matthew started paddling late 2011 and it has taken a hold on the entire family. His wife Lauren, their son Mitchell, father Rod, mother Leanne, sister Emma and no doubt - when old enough, their latest addition Oliver, have all taken to the sport as well as dragging many an unsuspecting friend or work colleague out for a paddle.
