Kids & Schools SUP Lessons
Perth Stand Up Paddle School provides 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.
Our instructors are Level 1 ISA Qualified Stand Up Paddle Board Instructors. Our Perth Stand Up Paddle School is affiliated with Surfing WA.
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 32 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.
For all enquiries please call Nicki Jones on 0430 441 600 or email email@example.com
