Unlock your SUP Potential

Whether you’ve been gifted a paddle board or embraced the decision to buy your own, this session is perfect for those who are looking for guidance on setting up their equipment safely and correctly. This 1hr long session is tailored to those eager to dive into the world of paddle boarding.

During this session, we’ll walk you through the process of setting up and inflating your board correctly. We’ll also cover essential aspects such as setting up our paddle, understanding various leashes and where we would use them depending on the environment, and discussing why we wear buoyancy aids. Feel free to bring any questions you may have – we’re here to help!


Once our kit is all set, we’ll discuss how to access the lake safely and efficiently with our boards. Then, it’s time for a leisurely paddle on the water. We’ll introduce you to some basic paddling techniques, along the way. Finally, we’ll wrap the session with a look at how to pack down your equipment properly.
