Thanks for your interest in the SUP intro. The course start time is 1:30 pm at the centre. This course is a great way to get started with SUP boarding with our experienced SUP instructor Mark Reid.
Across the afternoon, you will learn about setting up, safety, awareness of water and weather conditions, understanding of the board and paddle, getting on and off the board correctly and safely, body position and board balance, paddle strokes, and turning.
After our standard lesson most people are ready to take up the sport and be out on the water without the need for an instructor to be close at hand. Our additional lesson see you practice your new skills over longer distances paddling around the bays unassisted.
We can provide wetsuits, buoyancy aids and splash tops, so you should be fully kitted out on the water. We ask that you bring some footwear that you don’t mind getting wet as well as some for wearing after you have changed. Also bring a towel, and some warm clothes for after we come off the water. Bring some sun cream if the sun is out, as believe it or not it can get hot enough to burn here in Wales! We have excellent changing and shower facilities on site at Porth Eirias, there are also lockers that accept a £1 coin (and even give it back afterwards.)
There is a restaurant on site, but feel free to bring a packed lunch. If you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to give us a call.
