Surfs SUP Watersports Paddleboarding Instructors are RYA and ASI qualified and highly experienced with over 30 years coaching experience.
Childrens paddle board lessons
Our childrens sup lessons are great for fun and education.
If your kids are part of a family lesson, we will take 11 years and up, but if they’re coming to paddle in a group or privately, then they need to be 13 and up.
The children, learn to enjoy and be safe around the water, whilst gaining the proper skills on a stand up paddle board.
Depending on the group, we can throw in some games as well, so it’s not just about paddling.
FFamily sup lessons
The Family SUP lessons are run all throughout the season and can be booked online for a 1 or 2 hour session.
The Family Group booking allows 2 adults and 2 kids,to either relax and play a few sup games or spend the time learning to paddle.
The minimal age requirement for kids is 11yrs +
Kids love to splash and play, so we keep the whole session light hearted and fun, and go at your pace.
We take safety very seriously with all of our paddle sports and will make sure the whole family is drilled in not only paddling but awareness. If you do go for a 2 hour session, there is a lot more time to drill those new skills whilst having fun.
Group paddleboard lessons
Group intro sup lessons are setup to allow anyone, be they an individual or small group of you to get on the water with others.
Throughout the summer these groups are pretty busy so it is worth getting yourself booked in sooner than later.
The groups lessons are easy going, and our aim is to make sure everyone gets up and going, so it’s not a race.
Our sessions will run with a minimum of 3 and max of 14. If we don’t have sufficient numbers we may reschedule.
Semi private lessons
The semi private lessons are for you and one other, only.
It may be you’re buying a birthday gift for your partner, so the Semi private paddle board lesson is perfect as you can paddle together, without random strangers on your session.
If part way through the session, you want to paddle off together, then you can let us know and we will meet you back at the van when you’re done.
1-2-1 or private lessons
The 1-2-1 or private lessons are tailored just for you.
Our private lessons are run to an exceptional standard, especially if you’re after really honing in on techniques. Ian Phillips is a “real waterman” and his paddle boarding experience has left no stone unturned, with a very detailed eye.
This session is blocked out so we paddle together and focus on you only.
You might be looking for a birthday gift for someone or just want to specifically focus on your own skills like step back turns or paddling faster and more skillfully.
Downwind paddboarding lessons
The downwind paddleboard lessons are a great way to experience rougher water and wind.
We work this session in different ways depending on the sea state, tide and wind direction, so we may be running the boat alongside or paddling with you.
Either way, you’re going to start learning how to harness the power of the wind and bumps into your paddleboarding.
This session runs for small groups only and paddlers who are comfortable on their boards and on the water.

Sup Lesson Taster
The SUP Lesson Taster session is run over 2 hours on Chichester Canal.
For the first hour you have a lesson with us, and then for the second hour you’re set to paddle alone.
This session is suitable for those groups who feel comfortable on the water without us being by your side.
Note: during the lesson we’re responsible for you on the water, but once alone you’re simply hiring kit. If we feel it is not safe to leave you unaided we will discuss this at the time.
