About the event
Part of our Paddleboarding Events Uk offer with expert knowledge and coaching from Daddyboards, we have various opportunites to hit the surf and enjoy a full weekend of SUP Surf skills. We even hosted a Winter session last year for the weather hardened.
The weekends will include SUP Surf Skills including the basics of catching waves, forecasting, correct stance, first manoeuvres and of course safety elements of the beach/surf environments.
This course is ideal for those who can paddle comfortably on flat water and are able to fully control a board. Day one will prepare you for the surf with some board handling and agility skills and day two will be putting it all into practice amongst the waves. This course is a combination of theory on the land but with lots of practical included too. In addition to the SUP Surf element, we've teamed up with Sauna Box HQ to provide a wild sauna experience to warm you up after hitting the surf.

These saunas are wood fired, reaching temperatures over 85 degrees celsius and completely off grid, providing the perfect wild sauna experience
