SUP Skill & Progression Session

Hickling, Norfolk
sup - Up to 8 people


If you've already been though our L1 Beginners SUP Sessions and it has left you wanting more - or you're already able to SUP but are looking to improve on your paddle technique, balance, fitness or just looking to be more confident and grow your SUP skills, then these sessions are just what you're looking for!

Unlike our Beginners SUP lessons - our new 'SUP Skill Progression Sessions allow you to learn more SUP skills - such as the following:

  1. Learn and improve on the 5 phases of the paddle stroke
  2. Try out more advanced and efficient turning techniques - Step-Backs for example
  3. Build up your stamina, strength and paddling efficiency to enable you to travel further - exploring more for longer for example
  4. Improve ability for balance, weight distribution and how to trim the board for direction
  5. Grow all over body fitness gains - SUP uses every muscle going!
  6. Be that totally 'Cool Joe' next time you're out with friends!

Equipment Supplied

Fully Qualified & Experienced Instructor

Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP)


Coiled leash

If you have your own board then you're more than welcome to bring it to these sessions - please let us know in advance if you are.


You must already have the ability to SUP, have attended one of our Beginners SUP sessions, or have learnt SUP elsewhere. If you are a complete beginner then you'll need to attend one of our Beginners Introduction to SUP Sessions (click for link) - these are a perfect way to learn all the basics of SUP.

Swim 50 metres (164 ft), without stopping and unaided.

Minimum age 8 years - no upper age limit - SUP is for all!

What to bring

  1. Parking is anywhere in the car park at NOA HQ and Pleasure Boat Inn pub

  1. Toilet and changing facilities are available at the public toilet facility located on the left upon arrival in the car park.

  1. It’s advisable to bring a wetsuit if you have one and especially in the earlier months of the year, however this may prove to be too warm over the summer – but ultimately remember, SUP is a dry sport (once learnt) and the idea isn’t to go swimming!

  1. If you don't have a wetsuit then a few changes of clothes to enable you to change into - just in case of any accidents!

  1. Time on the water to last approx 1-1.5 hours of actual paddling, so make sure you bring some food and snacks to keep you going - SUP can be tiring, especially when you're learning for the first time! We are also located right next to the Pleasure Boat Inn pub should you feel you need something a little more substantial.

  1. Please note that we recommend that you don’t bring a camera unless it’s of a waterproof variety (waterproof phones or GoPro type of action camera in waterproof housing etc should be fine but don’t drop them!) or if you do make sure it's tied on to your body somewhere!

  1. Your instructor will however be equipped with a waterproof camera and will happily take photos of before and after of you enjoying your adventure.

  1. If you wear glasses or want to look uber cool in pictures in your sunglasses, please remember that if you head for a swim they may get dislodged from your head, so please remember to tie or secure them on in place.



Is there a minimum age requirement to participate on these sessions?

We operate a minimum age of 8 years old for these sessions - this is due to the length of the session, potential weather conditions and also equipment levels. 

Do I need to be able to swim?

Yes, due to the aquatic nature of SUP we ask that you can confidently swim a minimum of 50m unaided.

In the case of this trip the minimum bookings required is 4 people booked on in advanceof the trip date.

Should the trip look like it will not take place due to insufficient bookings, you will be notified of it’s cancelation as soon as possible (5pm night before trip at latest) and as we don't want you to miss out - a gift voucher/code will be sent too you in order to re-book onto anything that you would like to take part in with NOA in the future.
