Stand Up Paddling (SUP) 

Stand Up Paddling (SUP) is wildly popular and currently the fastest growing water sport. This makes a lot of sense as it is lots of fun, relaxing, easy to learn and involves a complete body work-out. 

 

When you practise SUP, you stand on a large surfboard and battle the water by applying a large paddle. It is a challenging balancing act that will require you to continuously flex your stomach, buttock and leg muscles. 

 

During the course, we will be out on the water to teach you various techniques to be able to stand on the board in a relaxed way. You will soon find out that stand up paddling involves an intensive work-out.  For paddle boarding requires you to use 95% of your muscles; without really noticing it, you will undergo a great work-out. Moreover, it is a very relaxing activity as you are on the water and in the midst of some wonderful countryside. 


We make use of SUP boards manufactured by Mistral, type IMOD 12'6. These boards can be used for relaxed SUP tours as well as competition-level SUP activities. 
 
Once you have completed the course, you will be awarded an official certificate from the Dutch Water Sport Association, which will be evidence both in the Netherlands and abroad that you have (sufficient) experience in stand up paddling to hire a board. 

 

The course consists of three lessons of 1.5 hours, which will centre on technique, posture, safety and use of the equipment.

This three-week course will be offered in week 25 to 27.

What to wear 

You are recommended to wear a lightweight, fast drying and comfortable outfit. Preferably including water shoes or some old trainers that are okay to become wet. You can also go barefoot but this will make you vulnerable to getting hurt, e.g. when you fall in the water and touch anything sharp.
