You will be paired up for the practice scenarios, so if you know someone else who may benefit from this course, why not let them know so you can buddy up!

Paddleboarding

Standup paddle boarding (SUP) is an offshoot of surfing that originated in Hawaii. Unlike traditional surfing where the rider sits until a wave comes, stand up paddle boarders stand on their boards and use a paddle to propel themselves through the water, testing the rider’s balance and co-ordination skills. We will provide all the kit needed to keep the participants warm and safe including wet suit, paddleboard, a paddle, buoyancy aid and helmet – they just need to bring a sense of adventure!
