Stand Up Paddleboarding, also known as SUP is similar to surfing but using a long paddle for movement. SUP beginners is ideal for those who have never been on a SUP (stand up paddleboard) or those who have taken part in a session here at Edgbaston Watersports before. For children over the age of 10. We will cover all the essential skills needed to give the participant confidence on the board and will allow them to perform some great tricks. SUP beginners is a great starting platform and everyone who has taken part can move onto SUP junior improvers – a full day trip exploring the local canals.
This course is available during Easter half term, Whitsun (May) half term, Summer holidays and October half term.
