SUP LESSONS

We offer SUP (stand up paddle board) lessons for all skill levels. We can help you find the perfect starting point to gain the confidence needed to enjoy your next SUP adventure!

 

Our approach is simple and effective:

  • Lessons are delivered in a manner that allows for step by step progression so the learning of new skills isn’t overwhelming.

  • Our experienced instructors break down the lessons into skill sets that are easy to understand, remember and apply.

  • We ensure that you gain a practical sense of each skill, which will allow you to understand when and how to best use your new skills to improve your paddling experience.

Our Brentwood Bay location is a great option for those new to stand up paddle boarding, with beginner courses that focus on balance, technique, safety and having fun on your board!

 

Our Swartz Bay (Canoe Cove) location offers a more advanced paddling environment and is ideal for those wishing to challenge themselves and take their skills to a higher, more confident level. You'll learn navigation, how to paddle in currents, how to further develop your technique and how to plan and prepare for more challenging water conditions.​
