SUP Training now available to club members and non members

We have recently been receiving a lot of interest in stand-up paddleboard (SUP) training, and I know that some of you have already contacted Viki to be added to a waiting list should a course become available.

I would like to let you know that we will be hosting our first introductory SUP course on Saturday 29th August. This will be a beginners' course and no previous experience of SUP is needed. The course will cover:

  • An overview of boards and equipment
  • Safety considerations before going afloat
  • Sharing the water with other craft
  • Correct forward paddling technique
  • General board handling and manoeuvering
  • Stance, positioning and footwork
  • Safety and rescue on the water

Boards, paddles, leashes and other essential safety equipment will be provided (although you are encouraging to bring your own buoyancy aids etc if you have them).The course is a half-day, and there will be a choice of morning (10:00-12:30) or afternoon (1:30-4:00) sessions. Each session is limited to 10 people at a cost of just £40 per person. The course will be run by an external provider. To book, contact the course provider 'Orange Dog Adventure-SUP' directly either This email address is being protected from spambots.

We have had a lot of demand for this type of training, and spaces are strictly limited to 20 in total on this date, so I would encourage you to book quickly to avoid disappointment.

Best wishes,
Martin Nelson,
Training Principal, Burton SC
