Wave Surfing Lessons, East Sussex
/ Camber Sands, East Sussex, South East England, United Kingdom

The huge benefit of stand up paddle surfing over regular surfing is that much smaller less steep waves are catchable before they break, and as the boards are much more stable it is easier to pick up. Additionally, as you start in a standing position, there is no popping up onto the SUP, while the paddle can be used for extra stability and drive on the wave.

Camber offers some for stand up paddle surfing with both small and big waves.

Course Duration: 2 hours
