SUP Fundamentals Part I
(Safety and Rescue)

From: £55.00

 

This session will leave you confident in how to plan and prepare a safe SUP trip, prevent incidents and know what to do if yourself or your paddling partner gets into difficulty. We want to support you to know that when you are out with friends or family, the safety and rescue skills to ensure a successful day out are practised, just in case.

Who is this course for?

Anyone who wants to get out and explore on their SUP independently with friends and family or as part of a club. You do not need to have your own paddleboard, but you are welcome to bring it with you if you do. We ask that you have been paddleboarding a few times and feel comfortable kneeling, standing and paddling a short journey. You may also want to look at doing Part II – personal skills.
