About US

MANASUP is an ASI accredited stand up paddle school operating in Umina Beach NSW. Established in 2013 we bring coaching to all levels from first time beginners to those a bit more experienced looking to increase surfing skills, wave count and paddling technique.


Our head instructor Paul Quirk is a lifelong waterman with a broad range of skills and experience in the ocean. Growing up on the East Coast of New Zealand surfing and ocean sports were a part of Pauls lifestyle and culture. Paul has competed at NSW SUP State Championships and has been a avid competitor on the local scene here in Australia and New Zealand.  

Paul, founder of MANASUP shares his Māori  heritage through his love and respect for the Ocean. “Mana” is a Polynesian word meaning prestigious and respectful.
