Sparks joined Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity (GOSH Charity) in January 2017, in a partnership aimed at increasing funding for life-changing child health research. We fund research together, but our history, supporters, fundraising and priorities remain independent. Behind the scenes, we share resources to keep our costs to a minimum and increase the amount of research we can fund.
The London SUP Open Tour brings a World Championship Tour competition and mass participation competition to one of the world’s most iconic cities all within the setting of an ultimate urban beach lifestyle festival.
BSUPA are proud to announce dates and venues for the BSUPA 2019 Sup Surf Series. The two confirmed events are outlined inside as well as some so far unseen action from last years finally. Just to get you excited….
Not so long ago we published the press releases and schedule for the 2019 BSUPA Instructor conference. Well, the bang of the drum continued as SUP instructors & BSUPA members across the country awoke from the salty slumber of winter to come together for the common good of promoting paddleboarding with BSUPA. After all, growing paddle boarding in the UK for our members is the ultimate goal at BSUPA. It’s what we set out to do and as our AGM showed that is what is being achieved.
We’re looking for the help of a Paddleboard Coach (perferably L2 Coach) to deliver some basic SUP training & guidance on the 4th,5th & 6th May in Torquay. BSUPA recognised training centre, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
BSUPA are entering another busy season for SUP. We have seen a steady growth in Schools, instructors and courses throughout the last 11 years with our schools network standing at almost 70 recognised centres and over 2000 instructors which is fantastic.
Have you been teaching sup for a while, are you an expert in your field? Waves, racing, distance, touring. Why not become a BSUPA Advanced Coach and step up to joining intermediate and advanced skills as the sport progresses and evolves in all directions.
There are two
international events requiring team selection in SUP surf, race and
prone paddle board disciplines. Ideally, it would be preferable for
all race disciplines to follow a comparable process however, there
are a number of factors which impinge upon
doing so; particularly that at the time of going to press an official
date or location is still to be released by the International Surfing
Association (ISA) for this year’s world championships or the
European Surfing Federation (ESF) for the European championships.
The BSUPA 2019 AGM and Instructor Conference is fast approaching on 6th April in Sandbanks, Dorset. If you haven’t already booked your place, do so now using the link below. The schedule has now been finalised and can be read forthwith.
