SUP Safety and Skills
This short course is aimed at those who have done some paddleboarding before. Ideal for
those who have had lessons or have their own board.
We will explore the following: board set-up, where to paddle, recognising and managing
risks, what to wear, what to carry, getting to and from the water, dealing with conditions,
on the water problem solving, assisting others, SUP rescues and sources of information.
The purpose of the course is to offer a basic introduction to safety and skills of
paddleboarding, helping paddleboarders become more informed of the interplay of SUPing,
environment and people. Delivery is through informal group discussions and practical
sessions (yes you will get wet). Thus, gaining confidence in decision making and practical
skills to safely enjoy SUPing.

    This was a really useful course that gave me the knowledge and confidence to be able to plan river trips on my own and with friends. It was great fun learning various rescue techniques too. Highly recommended for anyone venturing out on the river with their SUP.
