Awarded through British Canoeing, the SUP Coastal Leader award is for anyone who wants to lead paddleboard journeys in moderate tidal water and up to force 4 winds.

This award also allows you to deliver British Canoeing Personal Performance Awards, such as Paddle Start, Paddle Discover and the sheltered water SUP award (with recommendation)

To qualify as a SUP Coastal Leader, you must complete an assessment which is typically one day.

There is also an optional training course, which we offer over 2 days, to help develop your skills and work towards assessment. 

More information about the award and routes to assessment can be found on the Paddles Up Training website HERE
