Once you have learnt the SUP basics you can progress onto the river tours or wave surfing lesson:
Course Duration: 2 hours
The first two days of this course follow the same outline as the 1 and 2 day courses (above) and it then offers another full day on the board to really master the board start and go on to controlled edging, upwind riding and turns. If you’re keen to take up the sport we recommend the three day kitesurfing lesson as it gives the time to become confident and independent.
Course duration: 18 hours total
All included + post course handout pack.
