Taster Lesson

SAUNDERSFOOT WEATHER

Learn the basics of Standup Paddleboarding

The Taster session lasts 1,5h. We start with an introduction on the beach and then go off on our knees and have a go at standing up, once you feel happy with standing on the board we explore a few different ways of navigating the board and then head off towards the Harbour or Wisemans Bridge depending on the wind direction. We teach a maximum of 8 people in a group to make sure that everyone gets the most out of it. The price include a shorty wetsuits and buoyancy aid if needed.

£ 25 per person
  • Duration: 1.5 hours
  • Level: beginner - intermediate
  • 1h or 2h alternative duration available

When / Where

We run our sessions around high tide (+/- 2h) because the bay is more protected from the wind at high tide. Normally all lessons are held from our main base at Coppet Hall Beach. If needed we move the lesson to Glen Beach and we will always tell you beforehand if this is the case. Click here to find our venues.

Payment

If you are interested to join a SUP session, just let us know and we will pencil you in. Payment is only due on the day either in cash or by card if the lesson takes place. We have a card machine but it is dependent on the Wifi connection we get on the beach. We will assess in the morning of the SUP session if we can run the session or if we need to postpone it because of the weather conditions. We only ask for a deposit if you are booking for a big group or a long time in advance to secure the slot.
