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?

Yes! 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.  I am a qualified Personal Trainer and Yoga Teacher and also hold a degree in psychology and counselling qualification...quite a few haha.  I am a fully insured SUP school with Curtis Marine Insurance for all the above.


WHO COACHES YOU?

I have been tremendously fortunate to of been coached by some of the worlds top SUP Athletes and current world champions (did I mention I was very lucky) 


I will continue to train and learn from the highest caliber of athletes I am able to and pass that knowledge onto you and make sure I am up to date with developments in our sport.
