Course Summary

The BSUPA Level 1 “Ready to Ride” course is aimed at adults & older children who have paddled before (Introduction Sessions) and want to refine their skills and take SUP to the next level. Ideal for those buying a SUP or hiring on Holiday.

Learning to paddleboard is a fast and fun process with a qualified BSUPA Instructor. 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 the course you will be given an introduction to how the weather and environment affects you, how to carry the board and paddle, paddling technique, different types of turns, self rescue, how to fall safely as well as how to plan expeditions.

The 2 hour course is run in flat water and at the end of it, subject to a short skills test you will be presented with your BSUPA Level 1 Ready to Ride Certificate.

Sessions Tuesday & Thursday, booked online. Cost includes use of a Board, Bouyancy Aid, Paddle & temporary membership. You will get wet so wear suitable clothing & footwear. See joining instructions for more details. Sessions run with a minimum of 2 so we may call and ask you to move your booking. Our Instructors are all BSUPA qualified (British Stand Up Paddle Association)
