We offer stand up paddle boarding sessions, personal paddling coaching & coaching courses at venues across the North York Moors including Yarm, Whitby, Stockton. Our experienced and qualified instructors have great local knowledge, work with all abilities and know where it is best to go and work with the conditions. Since 2007, we have taught over 4000 people to enjoy SUP.
We ask that all client’s sign our waiver disclaimer stating they abide by any prevailing guidelines and disclose any relevant medical conditions that will affect your safe enjoyment of SUP.
At the Lesson for safety:
We advise participants they must be able to swim at least 50 metres.
In the safety briefing, we focus on the environment that day and ensure that you are in visual distance of the instructor at all times.
