Aqua Terra Performance Logo

At Aqua Terra, we are just steps away from the sea.

Stand Up Paddle (SUP) is a great exercise for people who want to cross-train, build core strength, improve their coordination and balance, and get outside. We are ASI qualified Stand Up Paddle (SUP) instructors, meaning that we have the training and skills to keep you safe on the water and teach you the right technique.

We conduct both SUP classes and SUP yoga lessons out of our studio in sunny Stanley Bay- just a short trip from the city.

Our SUP and SUP yoga classes are perfect for beginners wanting to learn more, corporate outings, family outings, bachelor(ette) parties and more!

Niall Westley and Esther Bland doing Stand Up Paddle Yoga


“Esther makes SUP so fun and easy I hardly noticed I was working out! And the stunning views across Stanley are bliss. I also learnt handy techniques like how to turn efficiently and rest my legs.”

Allana D.

"Thank you for a wonderful balanced training, an incredible blend of being a lot of fun and a great work out. Incorporating Stand Up Paddle Boarding (SUP) into a personal training session adds a whole new dimension to fitness. From all aspects; the location, the equipment and the professional hands on instruction, the whole experience was amazing. I would not hesitate to recommend Esther and Aquaterra Performance and can’t wait for my next session!”

Judy S.

“Esther's SUP coaching was really useful - even if you've been out before, having someone teach you how to do it properly is great!”

Nat K.

“We absolutely loved our SUP experience with Niall! It was such a nice break from the hustle of HK city in beautiful Stanley Bay. We'd SUPed before but actually learnt some technique this time. Niall was also super knowledgeable about Hong Kong's history and current affairs, so conversation was really interesting too and we got some great recommendations for our trip. The Aqua Terra Performance studio is really nice as well. Thanks for such a great afternoon!”

Eliska H.

“Esther and Niall are some of the nicest and most welcoming hosts I have ever met. My father and I went on to this SUP journey together, and it worked out great. Really appreciate Niall from drawing connections with other sports that my dad is familiar with, such as talking about the connection of the whole body like golfing compared with SUP.

Shanyang C.

“This experience by far exceeded my expectations. I ended up meeting wonderful people, having a very cool water tour of Stanley, and learning a lot about both SUP and Hong Kong. Niall was my instructor for the class, and I learned a whole lot about paddle boarding. As an avid paddle sport athlete, Niall taught me about the other sports he’s involved in, including kayaking and Dragonboat racing. He and Esther have thought of every detail to give an incredibly rewarding experience (think restaurant recomendations, history of the beach, shower and towels, and refreshing drinks)! Highest recommendation.”
