SUP Baptism

SUP Baptism: Duration – 1.30h 

This is where you start and is perfect for first timers. SUP is all about connecting your body to your paddle through your paddle stroke and eventually timing that stroke to connect you to the energy in the water that is all around you. Sounds cool, right? Well, it is! Your first lesson gets your feet on the board and launches you onto the learning curve!

In this course you will learn:

  • Learn about the equipment
  • Water safety
  • Learn to paddle on the sand “Sand Art”and see what your stroke feels like before you get on the water: front stroke, stopping and back stroke, bracing for stability, basic turns for board control in 360 degrees.
  • Forward stroke – easy to follow tips to move the power through your arms and into your core.
  • How to pick up and carry your board and paddle.
  • Water entry for flat water or with some mellow waves.
  • Knee paddle and self-rescue techniques while you acclimate to the water and apply what you learned on the sand.
  • Practice basic skills: paddling in a straight line, staying still, 360 turns.
