SUP Experiences: New to SUP? The team will start you off on the right path and will make your SUP experience as easy as possible for you. You’ll be on a board that is so stable that all you’ll need to do is enjoy yourself. Their goal for your first session is that you’ve enjoyed yourself, and finish up with a big smile on your face, keen to get out for some more. The format for a beginner lesson is simple. Starting off on dry land, they familiarise you with the paddling and turning techniques, and that all-important first stand-up. Once they are confident that you’ve got the hang of it, you get out onto the water, and paddle around for a while in the kneeling position (they call it the ‘safe position’), until you’re comfortable with paddling, turning, and generally being on a board. Then they will get you up into the stand-up position, and head off for a cruise. The session will normally last about 2 hours including getting geared up and your paddling instructions.
