This two-hour course is the choice for you if you have little or no experience of standup paddling. Here, you will be introduced to the board and paddle and will learn about the fundamental paddling and control techniques, as well as essential stuff like proper launching and landing the SUP, self-recovery and understanding the effect that local conditions have on a session. At Surf Sanctuary, we don’t run our intro SUP lessons on a lake or enclosed water; we take you straight onto the sea as that’s where the sport was developed and where you paddle when you come to Cornwall. You will be immersed the exciting, dynamic ocean environment and quickly develop the relevant skills for a long life of safe, happy paddling. Whilst the Intro sessions are quite ‘cruisey’, expect your balance and senses to be challenged, and your feeling of accomplishment to soar through the roof. Intro SUP courses are available to anyone of the age of 14 who can swim 100m. Whilst we remain close to the shore in a sheltered sea state, there may be surface chop and small swell (unbroken waves); in our experience these are realistic conditions for first-time paddlers with correct equipment under the supervision of an experienced instructor.
