BSUPA Level 1 Ready to Ride SUP Course

During the course you will be given an introduction to how the weather and environment affects you, how to carry the board and paddle, paddling technique, different types of turns, self rescue, how to fall safely as well as how to plan expeditions and the basics of stance in surf.

The 2 hour SUP course in Cape Town is run in flat water and at the end of it you will be presented with your BSUPA Level 1 Ready to Ride Certificate.

BSUPA (The British Stand Up Padddle Association) is a UK organisation officially created as an association to represent the interests of the Stand Up Paddle Boarder. BSUPA leads the development of the sport through training/coaching schemes.



Adrenalised Boardsports has an in-house fully qualified BSUPA Instructor who also holds an EFRI (First Aid Instructor) rating. This ensures you receive professional certified training with safety the No.1 priority.
