  • Description

    Learn to stand up paddle board on Southport's Victorian Marine Lake, or improve your SUP skills and refine your technique.

    We will get you standing and paddling with confidence, or tail turning if that's your aim. Using the very best in inflatable SUP boards and carbon paddles (board, paddle and leash provided), and sharing our teaching experience and eight years of passion for the sport.

    A group lesson is suitable for you if you have good mobility and a general level of fitness. If you feel you will need additional time and help due to fitness, any mobility issue or condition please book a One to One Lesson where there will be no pressure to keep up with other paddlers. If unsure please contact us to discuss before booking.

    Our maximum group size is 4. Minimum age for children is 14 - under-18s must be accompanied on the lesson by a parent or guardian.

    If you would like an intermediate or progression session instead of joining a beginner lesson -

    What to bring

    It's not necessary to wear a wetsuit but you certainly can if you have one - and it may make you feel more willing to try the trickier techniques. If it's warm wear a rash vest or similar too so that you can zip your wetsuit down to avoid getting too hot. Otherwise, lightweight sportswear is ideal, or board shorts and rash vest (no cotton or denim that could get water-logged!). Please wear enclosed shoes - wetsuit boots or aqua shoes are ideal, otherwise old trainers that you don't mind getting wet. Falling in isn't compulsory, although we can't promise of course, so please bring a change of clothes and a towel! If you want to try the more tricky techniques getting wet is more likely, and you will get wet to the knees as we start off paddling on our knees.

    Please bring any medication or inhaler if required, sun screen and drink when sunny or warm.
