The BSUPA Level 1 “Ready to Ride” course 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 paddle board 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 paddlesurfing.
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 and the basics of stance in surf.
The 2 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 Certificate.
This course will run across 1 or possibly two Sunday mornings depending on weather. We usually start at early to get the lighter winds, but can accommodate later starts as well.
