Group SUP Lesson

Richmond
sup - Up to 12 people

Description

Want to work your core muscles, meet like-minded friends and master the basics of stand up paddleboarding?

Our small group lessons are a fun-packed way to take to the water and learn a new skill.

Under the wing of our friendly, expert instructors you will get to grips with paddling techniques on a micro-adventure along the River Thames.

During the session you’ll learn about different types of stand up paddleboards (SUPs), water safety and the rules of the river, launching and landing, paddling stances, efficient forward paddling and turning.

What to bring

You are going to be paddling beautifully stable boards but due to the nature of the activity, there is a chance that you may get wet.

Requirements

You are going to be paddling in beautifully stable stand up paddle boards so it is unlikely that you will end up in the water....although it can happen!


If you are a weak or non swimmer, please do let your instructor know so that they are aware of it.


You will start the session paddling on your knees before transitioning to standing, so you will need a degree of flexibility to do this.
