About SUP Newcastle

SUP Newcastle was originally formed in 2012 as the popular name of BAYSUP running the Hunters first stand up shop based at Nelson bay Port Stephens. At this time BAYSUP was operating two SUP schools, one in Nelson bay and the other on Newcastle Harbour. 


Baysup was one of the major sponsors of the state SUP titles & other community events. From 2013 baysup was the official distributor for ECS boards in Newcastle up until 2017 when sup Newcastle director Dylan Henry put the business on hold to become the international brand and team manger for ECS Boards Australia. Dylan lived in Florida the for 3 months of 2017 & 5 months of 2018 covering almost the entire country by road setting up new ECS dealers, schools, teaching & demo days selling a couple of 100 thousand dollars worth of boards. Dylan also competed at international events in both surf and race. 


In 2019 Dylan made a decision to come back and rebrand everything to the original SUP Newcastle. Sharing his passion with new and existing paddlers, making sure everyone gets the best equipment for the right price with exceptional customer service. 


Sup newcastle is now open for business as a mobile/online stand up paddle board shop. Stand up paddle board lessons & surf advice. Selling only the best equipment from top known SUP companies.
