Sheltered Water SUP Award

This award is designed to help you develop your understanding of how to plan and paddle a Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) in sheltered water. Your SUP Sheltered Water Award will give you the ability to organise and carry out an enjoyable and safe trip on the water up to 200 metres from shore, up to force 3 in winds. During the two days we will look at your personal paddling skills, planning skills and safety & rescue skills. 

If you are a Yoga teacher looking to deliver SUP Yoga sessions and will be deployed by a higher leveled coach and will be working at a specific site at their venue, this award + the FSRT course would allow you to do this. For more information on this please get in contact.
