Service Description

This is a free online Basic SUP Safety Zoom call for paddlers who have purchased a board and had no lessons or who have been on a tour but would like more information about keeping safe on the water especially on our Norfolk Coast. There have been lots of rescues this year largely down to paddlers not having basic sup safety information...at the end of the day its not necessarily their fault...they don't know what they don't know! To help prevent unnecessary RNLI call outs I think it falls to us as instructors to help pass on basic sup safety information...there will be a charge of £1 for this zoom call and every penny will be donated to the RNLI to help then continue the amazing work they do. Main Topics Covered: - Equipment - Boards are they appropriate for use - Buoyancy Aids types - Leash Types - Safety Gear - Wind Strength and Direction - Tides - Spring and Neaps - Rule of Twelfths I will only have 40 minutes free zoom time but if we dont get through everything I will send over information that you can research yourself and will run again later in the year but for now check out the above but also take time to read up on: - Wind against tide - sea state - Low and High pressure and how it effects the tides - Wind and how it effects the tides - Reading water what does it tell you There is loads you can do to educate yourself..never stop learning about keeping you safe!
