Our paddleboard taster session is the accredited BSUPA Level 1 “Ready to Ride” course which is aimed at people who have never stand up paddled before or people who have had a go but want to learn the basics.
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 technique of paddleboarding.
During the group course, you will be given an introduction to how the weather and environment affect 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 and the basics of stance in the surf.
The two hour course is run in flat water and at the end of it you will be presented with your BSUPA Level 1 Ready to Ride Card.
Please note, this is a group course where you will be participating with other customers.
