What is SUP Surfing

SUP surfing is such a rush, from ankle nipping waves to giant overhead monsters, but you need to get started on the right foot.

Our sup surfing lessons not only teach you how to surf, but also how to stay safe as well as recognising the surfing rules.

If you just turn up, jump on a wave and plough through the line-up you’re not going to be popular, so let’s get you skilled up to be a better sup surfer.

2 hour water based

A family sup surf lesson is great fun.  You’ll find the kids beat mum and dad into the ground as far as skills go, and that is great to see the kids making the most of it.

Everyone must be able to paddle and swim, to join us on these sessions, but that said. we’re not taking you out in tricky conditions, it is just easier for everyone.

The Family Group booking allows 2 adults and 2 kids to be on the session.

2 hour water based

This is the best way to really focus your time in the surf. We will be using either inflatable boards or proper hard boards on this session, and you can pick and choose what you want to cover.

The private sessions run at Bracklesham Beach, West Sussex.

2 hour water based

The Group booking is a great way to join other on starting out or improving in the sup surfing discipline.

We try to make sure everyone is at a similar level so we can all work together in the waves.

Our sessions run at Bracklesham or East Wittering and sometimes West Wittering or Hayling Island.

The sup surf lessons allow up to 7 people to join us on the water.

How do our sup surfing lessons run

Our aim is to get you up and paddling quickly, as water time is where you really experience SUP, so we have a quickstart process for our lessons:

Meet and greet at start time (we start on time, so please arrive early)

  1. Gather with all kit on the water’s edge.
  2. Quick safety briefing from the instructor.
  3. On water  / land demo.
  4. All onto the water.

This whole process should take no more than 15-20 minutes, giving us a paddling time of around an hour and a half.

What to bring
  • A towel and some warm clothing, even in the summer, is recommended.
  • Wetsuit and jelly shoes if you have some.
  • Asthma spray or epi pen if you use them. Please read the rules regards this.
  • Light food and drink for after the session.
Kit supplied
  • All equipment and tuition are included, but it is preferable if you have a wetsuit of your own and booties. Buoyancy aids are supplied unless you have your own.
  • Wetsuits must be prebooked.
  • Please do not bring any valuable items.
  • You must manage any meds and make us aware pre-joining the session.
  • Sessions can be weather dependent and may be rescheduled if conditions are not suitable, especially open water and surf.
  • Your session starts at the agreed lesson time advertised and cannot be offset or delayed on the day.
