Perth Stand Up Paddle School provides kids SUP lessons for Primary and Secondary students.

Our program has been specifically designed to introduce students of all ages and abilities to the sport of Stand Up Paddle Boarding.

Lessons include all aspects of paddling including water safety, balance, stroke technique, with a focus on fun, with lots of games thrown in. SUP is a fantastic sport encouraging a healthy lifestyle.

Unlike learning to surf where you have to travel to the beach and is very much weather dependent, we’ll find a location and time that’s suitable for your school and provides easy learning conditions. This is done utilising one of Perth’s most famous landmarks, The Swan River.

We can cater for up to 24 children at any one time. Perth Stand Up Paddle School provides the SUP boards and paddles.

Kids and parents are also welcome to join our general weekend lessons. It’s a great sport that both you and your child can enjoy together.

We use qualified instructors that have achieved the following:

  • ISA Level 1 SUP Instructor
  • Surf Rescue accreditation
  • Working with children check.

Our instructors have children themselves. Perth Stand Up Paddle School owner, Cameron McKay, also has a Graduate Diploma in Education. This makes him the most suitably qualified person to lead the teaching of kids SUP lessons.

Perth Stand Up Paddle School is the only paddle school in WA affiliated with Surfing WA. Through this, we are recognised as an official paddle school and quality community initiative. We are therefore supported by the Australian Sports Commission.

Our public liability and professional indemnity insurance is provided by Surfing Australia, who operates hundreds of surf/sup schools across the country. This means our coverage is proven and specific to our needs.

As a business recognised by the Australian Government, we are also proud to promote the Sun Smart message.

We find that stand up paddle boarding can be a great activity for special needs kids. Because it’s so easy, it’s a sport that many kids can learn and enjoy, which helps to build confidence.

Lucy (who is has dyspraxia) has been SUP boarding since she was 5 years old, and absolutely loves it. It’s something she and her parents all enjoy together.

The boys from Christchurch Grammar School have taken SUP sessions on Friday afternoons in term 4 for a number of years.

Their confidence and skill level has been outstanding.
