EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW
MY BALANCE IS BAD, I'VE NO CORE AND I AM SCARED I'M GOING TO FALL IN!
These are some of the barriers to engaging in SUP and welcome to the club you are not alone. A good instructor should have you you on the right equipment to set you up to succeed and also put you at ease.
Its a valid fear we spend our whole life not wanting to fall it hurts and is embarrassing but I love the saying "what if I fall?...ahhh but what if you fly" We also run (when its nice and warm) Fear of Falling Courses
WHAT SUP BOARD SHOULD I BUY?
Check out any forum and this question will pop up all the time? My advice to you is:
Don't rush to buy one. Ok I know its exciting you've got the bug but take your time
Know what you want to do surf, race, tour, recreational etc
Try as many as you can before you buy
Get a lesson or demo day to try different types of boards
ARE YOU QUALIFIED AND INSURED?

I am a Qualified with the Water Skills Academy as a SUP Coach (inland/ocean), Adventure Guide, Race Coach, SUP Yoga and SUP Fitness Instructor and have also undertaken the ASI Level 1 & 2 Instructor and BSUPA Level 1 Courses.
