Home Water Beginners

sup - Up to 6 people


Our Beginners Stand Up & Paddle lessons at Home Water are designed especially for complete beginners or for those who have done a little stand up paddle boarding before and who want to learn properly. They are also for those who have not yet completed their BSUPA Level 1 'Ready to Ride' certificate and wish to do so.

Your Instructor will teach you step by step how to stand up and get paddling, starting with your SUP board on the land and then progressing onto the water. The group session will last approximately two hours and when you have mastered all of the basics (which most people can do in one session) you will receive your BSUPA 'Ready to Ride' certificate.

Children aged 11 years and older are welcome to participate in these sessions as long as a parent/legal guardian is booked to paddle with them, accompanying and supervising them on and off the water at all times, on a strict ratio of one child to one parent/legal guardian. Please note that aunts, uncles, older siblings etc. do not count, it has to be the child's actual parent/legal guardian.

SUP equipment, Personal Buoyancy Aids (PBAs) and high viz rash vests are provided and wetsuits and wetshoes, in various sizes, are available to use.

Due to the warm weather conditions there is a slight increase risk of Blue Green Algae in lakes such as Home Water. Blue Green Algae can cause short term skin irritation and/ or stomach upset.

On leaving the water we recommend the usual precautions:

• Wash your hands before eating or drinking

• Shower

• Wash any kit or clothes

Consult your GP if symptoms occur. Thank you. 

What to bring

Please bring with you a bottle of water, swimwear & a towel, a strap to secure your glasses, an old baseball hat & sun cream if it's sunny & no expensive watches, jewellery or valuables. If you have your own wetsuit and wet shoes or boots please bring them too. Thank you.
