For this First Step Stand Up Paddling Skills course participants should be able to swim 10 metres wearing a buoyancy aid. All participants should be 16 years +.
Our First Step Stand Up Paddling (SUP) Skills course are suitable for anyone who is water confident and willing to give it a go. Tollymore’s location gives the flexibility to select the most suitable flat water sheltered venue for your First Step SUP Skills course, ensuring you get the most out of your session.
SUP boards are much longer, wider and more buoyant than ‘normal’ surfboards, enabling you to comfortably balance on them and propel yourself with the paddle. The equipment is light and easy to carry independently and really is a fantastic way to get around on the water.
The coaching session will begin with a safety briefing and general familiarisation with the board and paddle. We then demonstrate launching, landing and the safety position which everyone should revert to whenever they have any balance difficulties or when they return to shore.
We then provide detailed coaching on paddling techniques and steering the board. Skills taught will include how to stand using the correct posture and technique, forward and reverse paddle, simple turns and self-rescue techniques.
Eventually we will take you on a journey giving you the opportunity to put into practice the skills you have just acquired.
