Back by special demand, our super-fun full day of SUP for intermediates and improvers. a 6-7 hour session of practical, theory and fun, that will lift your SUP game to the next level and equip you with a whole lot of potentially life-saving (yours and others!) knowledge.
The day starts with a warm-up paddle, where we assess your existing ability and identify some work-ons.
Then it’s ashore for some theory and shore-based practise, working on isolating and improving the areas of your technique that need some attention.
Then it’s back on the water for some more paddling, where we put into practise what we’ve been working on.
Ashore for a snack, coffee and a chat about SUP safety, discussing the various problem scenarios that you might find yourself facing.
Back onto the water for another paddle – this time a nice cruise, but all the time we’ll be tickling away at those technique issues, and talking about the safety issues too.
Ashore for lunch, and then it’s time for the real fun stuff. We do the full SUP Rescue course, as detailed above. Everything you need to know on what to do if ever you encounter someone in trouble (whether you have your SUP board to hand or not). It starts in the class room, and finishes in the water, with some real life rescue practise. It’s a brilliant few hours, you’ll learn loads, and you’ll go away feeling incredibly empowered.
You do not need to be super fit or blessed with amazing stamina to complete this day, there is plenty of onshore time to recover. It is not meant to be a ‘boot camp’. Nevertheless, it’s certainly a very full day, and you’ll be exhausted at the end of it, but your SUP skills will be several rungs further up the ladder, and you’ll have knowledge and skills you never imagined you could possess.
Northland Paddleboarding is the only SUP School in the country that offers this course, so don’t miss out on this opportunity. Sign up now!
