Course Summary

The BSUPA “Born to Ride” course is a recognised certificate for children (10-13yrs) to learn Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP). This course is ideal for complete beginners, those who have been on the introduction course and want to develop their skills or families hiring a SUP on holiday.

Learning to paddleboarding is a fast and fun process. The course is structured to give you the skills needed to learn the basic techniques of paddle boarding.

During the course you will be given an introduction on  how the weather and environment affects you, how to carry the board and paddle, paddling technique, different types of turns, self-rescue and how to safely fall.

The 2 hour course is run on flat water and subject to a short skills test you will be presented with your BSUPA Level 1 Born to Ride Certificate.

Cost includes use of a board, buoyancy 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 3 so we may ask you to move your booking. Our Instructors are all BSUPA qualified.

Sessions can be arranged for groups/families of 6 subject to availability. Please email dates & times required to. Courses@blym.org.uk
