private beginner SUp lessons

This is a 90 minute or 2 hour (depending on the group size) stand up paddle boarding taster lesson to learn everything you need to be up and paddling safely in no time.

We’ll start with a short land demonstration to cover everything from familiarising ourselves with all the kit, how to handle our board and paddle, where to position ourselves on the board, how to hold the paddle for maximum impact on the water and how to enter the water safely.

We’ll practice the basic techniques to get from knee paddling to standing up, how to self rescue, tips for adjusting our position while on the water, basic turns and falling off safely – real learning happens when you fall!

We’ll go through the basics for checking the weather and water conditions and understanding how these impact your paddling so you can get out there independently and safely.

sup taster lessons in Sussex

I mostly launch on the Adur however I am also fully mobile and can offer private paddle board taster lessons across various lagoons, lakes, coastal location and rivers around Sussex.

The River Adur launching near Shoreham, East Sussex – relatively flexible and free parking, depending where we launch (more info provided at time of booking), there are more sheltered sections of the Adur for slightly windier days. It’s a stunning location for paddling and is a nice gently winding ride up and down with the tide.
