Intro to SUP - Group Class


During SUP class, I would equip you with basic SUP skills and safety knowledge so you can go out and explore the world by yourself in the future.

You'll learn the proper stance for balance and control, essential paddle strokes and turning techniques, as well as how to choose the right board and paddle.

SUP is a highly accessible, fun and social way to enjoy the sea or inland waters. Almost anyone can do it, whatever your age, skill or fitness level. Within just a couple of hours, you will have mastered the basics.

Don’t have your own stand up paddleboard? Then hire one from SUPera! Tick on adds-on 'Board required' and we would supply you with a full stand-up paddleboarding kit.


The class will be delivered to our designated location. Please refer to the meeting point for details.

*If you wish to organise a session at your designated location, please contact me before completing the booking to arrange it.

1:4 (MAX) the low ratio allows me to ensure you have the best instructional experience possible!

What to bring

Please bring water to keep you hydrated during and after session.

Please don't forget about a towel and spare clothes just in case if you get wet for your journey home (hopefully you won’t need them!).

We recommend you wear what makes you feel comfortable depending on the weather condition.

  1. Shorts and t-shirt if it’s warm, leisure/gym wear if it's not.
  2. If you have neoprene clothing or wetsuit that's even better.
  3. Wet shoes, flip flops or old trainers are recommend. In the summer you may wish to take them off and be bare foot on the board.

During summer months, please also bring suntan lotion, hat and insect spray for the evening session if you have it.

We can look after car keys, but please leave other valuables in your car.


– You should be able to swim.

– You should be over 18.

– You must have completed our booking form prior to the session.


We start sessions with brief induction on land, exploring equipment and safety principles.

From our launch point, we would start on our knees to help you find your balance and practice the basic principles of the stroke, turning and stopping. Then we stand up and paddle along the canal to explore the local surroundings.
