Activity Highlights:

Our BSUPA Level 1 “Ready to Ride” lessons are perfect if you’re new to stand-up paddleboarding or have dabbled a bit but want to truly master the basics.

There’s no need to worry, as learning to paddleboard is a blast, especially with our qualified BSUPA Instructor at a BSUPA-approved SUP school. The course is expertly crafted to ensure you gain the skills and knowledge to safely enjoy the water while having fun and grasping the core techniques of paddleboarding.

In just two hours on serene flat water, you’ll transform from a beginner to a certified paddler. By the end, you’ll be awarded your very own BSUPA Level 1 Ready to Ride Certificate.

Your experienced instructor will take you through:

  • Key safety information.
  • Getting on and off the board.
  • Turning, slowing down and accelerating.
  • Progressing to standing.
  • Improving paddling technique.

No, but you do need to be able to swim! Most of our guests have no previous experience of paddle boarding. At all of our launch sites we will start with a safety briefing and make you familiar with all of the equipment that you will use. Regardless of your age or skill level, you will find our sessions to be safe and rewarding.

Anyone in average physical condition can enjoy SUP. The only prerequisite is a spirit of adventure and the ability to swim. Our tours and lessons are not considered to be physically demanding, therefore you do not require a high level of fitness. However, If you have any physical impairments that require special services, please notify us so that we can discuss them.

We are happy for under-18s to join our tours if accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. We will provide a buoyancy aid, which must be worn. They should be able to confidently swim 50m unaided. There is no upper age limit.

There is car parking at all our departure points. Charges vary according to location.

We recommend that you bring your own bungie cords for your glasses. Although it is safe to wear glasses, there is a risk of loss, for which we cannot be held responsible for.

Falling in is part of the learning experience! Most of the time, you will just get back on the board and carry on. If the weather is cool, we may recommend a change of clothing.

Yes. You are welcome to bring your own board to our lessons or tours. However, please arrive at least 20mins before the start time to set up the board and let us know in advance that you are bringing your own equipment.

We recommend that you do not bring valuables onto the water with you. All keys and small valuables can be locked in our van whilst we are on the water.

In the interest of safety, we do not head onto the water in high winds or if there is thunder and lightning in the weather forecast. We will inform you at the earliest opportunity if we need to cancel a session and will endeavor to reschedule to the next available date. Your safety and enjoyment will be our first priority when assessing the weather conditions.
