Learn to SUP

BSUPA Courses – from Tasters to Racers!

BSUPA now offer courses for all levels of paddle boarders, from first time tasters to  courses tailored for more experienced paddlers. Because of the different pace of learning and extra safety that must be taken with under 16s, we have developed separate, parallel schemes for juniors and adults

P1000782Perhaps your first experience of SUP is at a demo day or fun event. Your BSUPA Instructor will show you the basics of the board and run through any basic safety factors and then you’ll spend around 20 minutes on the board. Hopefully realising what a fun and accessible sport SUP is!

From here there is a progression to our Level 1,  Ready to Ride  (Born to Ride for Juniors) as an independent paddle boarder. For many recreational paddleboarders this will be all that is ever required. Of course others will want to develop their skills and abilities further and Level 2 courses are designed to prepare both adult and junior paddle boarders for touring, racing and surfing.

BSUPA courses have been developed by some of the most experienced watersports instructors in the world.
