You will start with a safety talk and introduction to your chosen paddling discipline (SUP or kayak), and then your instructors will take you out onto the water.

When you are on the water your instructors will take your group through the basics of paddling and maneuvering your craft. All of these skills will be taught in a safe environment with plenty of activities and games to consolidate your team’s learning. Your group will become pro in no time!
