The Mini SUP is something we have introduced in the summer 19 because of the high demand from younger children who want to learn how to paddleboard. The lessons are kept in smaller groups and held in shallow water.
We teach a maximum of 6 children in a group and stay close to the shore so that the parents can see how their children are progressing. The age restrictions are min. of 8 until 10 years old. We can’t lower the age limit because of insurance reasons.
Learn everything about the different wind directions and what to look out for before you go into the water
Getting to know your equipment
Become a star in knowing your equipment and learn how to stay safe in the water
Paddling on your knees
At the start of the lesson with go off on our knees so that we can start to learn the basics without the additional challenge of keeping balanced on the board
Learning how to turn
We will go through a few fun exercices that will help us learn how to turn the board in different directions
Standing and how to stay balanced
As soon as you feel comfortable and in control of your board we are getting a feel of how to stand up
Before we jump off our boards it’s important to learn how to get back on the board without the help of an instructor
Balance exercises and board games
Now we have time to have fun on the board and see how far we can push it to loose our balance
Let’s see who is the fastest on the board and who wins the challenge!
We had a wonderful taster session in August 2019 with our older kids. The session was a great experience and excellent fun, we even spent most of the time on top of the boards.
Coppet Hall beach is stunning. What a fabulous place to paddleboard. Good trails have masses of different kit to rent. Easy parking. Lovely walk to or from Saundersfoot/Wisemans Bridge too to make a day out of it
