BSUPA AGM & Conference 2024


Calling all BSUPA Schools, Instructors and WSA Instructors looking to convert! Come to our annual BSUPA Schools & Instructors Revalidation Conference + AGM on 23rd March 2024 hosted in Sandbanks Poole. 

Date: Saturday 23rd March, 2024 at 4.45pm
Location: Sandbanks, Poole

We are pleased to announce that this year the annual general meeting of the British Stand up Paddleboarding association will be held at:

The North Haven Yacht Club
28 Banks Road
BH13 7QB

BSUPA Members Welcome!

If the following apply to you then this is a ‘Do not miss!’ event. Please note that all BSUPA members are welcome and encouraged to attend:

  • Needing to revalidate their BSUPA Instructor’s qualification before the start of the 2024 summer season?
  • Wanting to meet the BSUPA team and other Instructors/School Principals? 
  • Keen to participate and learn – or needing to get on the Conversion pathway from WSA?

Event Schedule

We have a great line up of interesting speakers in the morning and then in the afternoon you can participate in our ‘micro paddle sessions,’ to either revalidate your current BSUPA Instructor certificate in a ‘Revalidation Paddle’ – or for WSA Instructors, get onto the Conversion pathway to become part of the BSUPA family in a ‘Conversion Paddle’. There is an ‘Instructor Hacks’ paddle for those not needing to revalidate or convert. Then we will finish the day with our Annual General Meeting AGM, to which all members are invited. Any resolutions proposed by Members for consideration at the AGM or any nominations by Members of candidates for election to the Board must be received by us not less than 7 clear days before the conference date. Thank you.
