STAND UP PADDLEBOARD COURSES

Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) is one of the world’s fastest growing water sports. Over the past few years, it has become huge in the USA and Australia and is now going mainstream in the UK.

SUP is a highly accessible, fun and social way to enjoy sea or inland waters. Almost anyone can do it, whatever your age, skill or fitness level. We’ve had students from 6 to 75 and also people with physical disabilities.

Within just a couple of hours, you will have mastered the basics.

Boards, paddles and rash vests are provided by Ocean High and you will learn using the latest boards from Red Paddle Co. Our courses are run in safe waters off Marazion in west Cornwall as well as the shelter of Penzance harbour and Hayle harbour when conditions dictate. All our instructors are BSUPA qualified and fully insured.

We guarantee you will leave with a smile on your face and a new passion!

In just one hour, we will teach you board safety, assessment of the conditions and location, introduction to the board (without a paddle to start with to get a ‘feel’ for it) and self-recovery techniques. We then add the paddle to the mix and get you up and riding in no time. 

By the end of the session, you will almost certainly be able to confidently paddle a board. Above all, you will be having fun and will want to have another go! Boards are then available to hire after your intro course so you can put all you have learned into practice on your own.

  • Assessing conditions and location
  • SUP water safety
  • Self-recovery techniques

Learning to SUP is a fast and fun process with a qualified BSUPA instuctor. The course structure is designed to give you the information you need to get on the water safely, have fun and learn a variety of SUP-paddling techniques.

The course is run on flat water and successful participants will be presented with a BSUPA Level 1 Ready to Ride Certificate. Also available as a one-to-one course at £50, please contact us to arrange booking.

Why did the seal cross the road? Got a call out to St Michaels Mount yesterday. This pup needed a bit of fluid hydration and relocation. Great to be helping the British Divers Marine Life Rescue team with the masses of seal rescues this winter. #sealrescue #cuteseal #bdmlr ... See MoreSee Less
