Paddle Boarding Coaching Session

Join our highly experienced and qualified SUP coaches for a fun and tailored paddle board session which is designed to take your paddling to the next level.

Our venues throughout Ayrshire, South west Scotland are carefully chosen to offer paddlers a positive experience that brings the core session themes to life.

Is this for me? Suitable for 12yrs and over, coaching sessions are highly tailored and are recommended for ‘improver’ level paddlers whom may have their own equipment and have gained some personal experience or have previously undertaken an Intro to SUP lesson and require more input, consolidation and confidence to stand up on the board and paddle more efficiently within dynamic environments.

Equipment Hire Additional £20.00 – This includes quality boards, buoyancy aid, leash, paddle and 5mm wetsuit.

Coaching sessions are essentially person-centred and practically based where information is paced at the level of the group in thematic and bite size chunks.  Coaching sessions include a journey on the SUP boards within relatively sheltered environments. Group interaction and peer to peer learning is encouraged.

On arrival the lead coach will assess the group experience through discussion and build the session around six core themes such as:

  • Trip planning (Factors to consider for a brilliant and safe day out).
  • Setting up equipment for paddling
  • SUP Safety and scenario based learning including self rescue.
  • Paddling technique (By observation, detection and correction the development of skill through fun tasks, drills, games and activities on the move)
  • Tactical paddling for coping with wind, tide, obstacles and dynamic environments.
  • Journeying (physical workout that’s paced for the level of the whole group)

Woven within each 3 hour session will be topical themes such as:

  • The Environment and Us (Plastic patrols, environmental awareness)
  • The marine environment(identifying wildlife, flora, fauna commonly found on our inter-tidal zones)
  • Interpreting weather and water (through systematic observation)
  • Paddling together (looking out for others whilst on the water)
  • Personal feedback and advice

 

All participants should be in good health and not be displaying any common symptoms of Covid-19.
