Ready to Ride
2 Hour Course
The BSUPA “Ready to Ride” course is aimed at adults who have never stand up paddled before
or people who have had a go but want to learn the basics properly.
We do however recommend taking part in a 1 hour taster session before taking part in this course.
Learning to paddleboard is a fast and fun process with a qualified BSUPA Instructor and BSUPA approved SUP school. The course structure is designed to give you the information you need to get on the water safely, have fun and learn the basic techniques of paddle boarding.
During the course you will be given an introduction to how the weather and environment affects you, how to carry the board and paddle, paddling technique, different types of turns, self rescue, how to fall safely as well as how to plan expeditions and the basics of stance in surf.
The 2 hour course is run in flat water and at the end of it,
you will be presented with your BSUPA Level 1 Ready to Ride Card
and a copy of Simon Bassetts BSUPA Stand Up Paddle Boarding Beginners Guide.
We can also offer a 1 hour 1-1 BSUPA Assessment for experienced paddlers looking to gain the Ready to Ride certification allowing them to hire with us and other centres around the UK for £60
