Whether you would like to give Stand Up Paddling a go or if you are already hooked and are getting ready to go on longer paddles or want to learn to SUP Surf, the best way is to take a lesson with our experienced and qualified instructors. No experience is required, only the ability to swim 25m. We offer lessons and tours to help you learn this unique sport and we will supply you with all the equipment you will need. We will show you the ropes and guarantee you will have an awesome time and lots of fun when you learn with us!
The best way to master the basic skills is to learn on flat water. Most of our lessons are held at Harlyn Bay, near Padstow on the North Cornish coast or if conditions are unsuitable we run lessons on the stunning Camel estuary in Padstow.
We offer private lessons and group lessons for paddlers of all ages and abilities so come along and join us.
Group Introductory Learn To Paddleboard £45 for 2hrs
In our introductory lesson you will learn about weather assessment, beach and estuary hazards, the board and paddle, how to carry your board, entry into the water, prone and knee paddling techniques, basic water rescue techniques, safety and of course how to stand. We will provide you with tips and techniques for your core balance, posture and paddling and once you have this mastered you can progress onto one of our other courses. With our instruction you will be up, paddling and totally stoked on your very first lesson.

One to One SUP Wave Sessions 1 hrs £60 per hour.
Taking a SUP board into surf conditions is a whole different experience to flat water paddling and you must be confident that you can manage the conditions. It is esential that you have been trained in SUP technique and etiquette before you paddle into a surf lineup. You must be able to confidently paddle an SUP board and have had SUP lessons and have surfing experience or completed a Beginner Fast Track course with our surf school at Harlyn. In these lessons you will learn important safety skills, how to paddle out through waves, enhanced stationary turning skills, wave selection and positioning and importantly surf etiquette. This is a great introduction into SUP surfing and without proper instruction stand up paddle surfers can be a hazard to to not only themselves but other water users. Safety is a priority and for that reason we feel that these lessons need to be taken on a one to one basis. If you are unsure of your ability give us a call to discuss further.
