2hrs Intro to stand up Paddleboarding

Our “Intro to SUP” lesson will leave you feeling confident to stand up, paddle, turn and simply enjoy flat water paddling. We’ll start with a ‘dry run’ where you will become familiar with the equipment and SUP safe practices. On the water we will go through basic paddle strokes you can use to navigate through the water. We will teach you how to turn and manoeuvre the board with ease! Paddleboarding in Cornwall is an amazing experience so come and learn to SUP with us!
