Stand Up Paddle Board Sessions

ABC has a number of Stand Up Paddle Boards that are used for regular "Familiarisation and Introduction" sessions.
These are also available for hire to club members once they have completed a session.

We have 4 types of SUP Boards:   
Red Snapper Junior 9'4"
BIC Dura-Tec 9'4"
BIC Dura-Tec 10'4"
BIC Ace-Tec Wind 11'6"

"Familiarisation and Introduction" sessions will run on below dates:

22 July 2018

2 options on each date: 10-12am (One space) / 3-5pm (Full)


These sessions are open to members and
non-members (although non-members cannot subsequestly hire boards).

Normally, we will cover the following during the session:

  • Introduction to equipment, different sizes of available boards and paddle length
  • Equipment storage and care
  • Safety concerns including buoyancy aid, leash, mobile phone, whistle, fitness, upwind first and paddling area
  • Basic Paddle technique, including starting, stopping and rest technique

Children aged 8 - 11 may take part, but may not subsequently hire boards. Teenages aged 12 and over and adults who are club members may subsequently apply to be added to the SUP Hiring List.
