Yes, Stand Up Paddle Boarding is easy, once you know the basics!

Yes, anyone can jump on a board and paddle but learning the correct technique is beneficial to ensure your paddling enjoyment.

Yes, these group SUP lessons are ideal for complete beginners, or for those who have already tried, but it didn’t quite go to plan!

In our Learn To SUP lesson, we cover the basics; how to carry your board, how to adjust your paddle, correct paddle angle, how to transition from knees to feet and how to get back on once you have fallen off.

Falling off is essential!! Getting wet is half the fun!

After your Learn To SUP session, you will have the necessary skills to manoeuvre your board effectively, paddle with an efficient paddle stroke and have confidence moving your feet. You’ll be paddling like a pro!
