BSUPA 'Ready to Ride'

Hadleigh

The BSUPA Level 1 “Ready to Ride”, a course aimed at adults who have never stand up paddled before or people who have paddled but want to learn paddle boarding properly.

Learning to paddle board is a fast and fun process with a qualified BSUPA Instructor and BSUPA approved SUP school.

The course structure is designed to give you the information you need to get on the water safely, have fun and learn the basic techniques of paddle boarding. During the course you will be given an introduction to how the weather and environment affects you, how to carry the board and paddle, paddling technique, different types of turns, self rescue, how to fall safely as well as how to plan expeditions and the basics of stance in surf.

The 2 hour course is run in flat water at Hadleigh Park and at the end of it, you will be presented with your BSUPA Level 1 Ready to Ride Certificate.
