As a BSUPA approved SUP school we are able to offer you this course to help you gain the knowledge and stills to be safe on the water. We suggest this course to anyone looking to get into the sport or if you have your own board but little paddling experience. This is also a great option if you have done our one hour taster lesson and now want to progress your stills and confidence before heading out on your own adventure.
The course structure is designed to give you the information you need to get on the water safely, have fun and learn the basic techniques of paddle boarding. During this course you will be given an introduction to how the weather and environment affects you, paddling technique, different types of turns and self rescue. At the end of this course you will be presented with your BSUPA Level 1 Ready to Ride Certificate. The course runs for two hours and involves both theory and on the water practical sessions to get you ready to ride.
All paddle board, wetsuit (if required), and safety equipment is provided. Attendees must be able to swim 25 metres. This is a group session and requires an minimum of three people to run.
