SUP Sheltered Water Award 

The SUP Sheltered Water award trains participants to consider all aspects of safe and effective paddling in up to 200m from shore and up to F3 winds. 

A mixture of teaching, coaching and exploring, this course will look to develop existing skills and knowledge, to give you confidence when you head out on your SUP. Our British Canoeing SUP Coach will help you become an effective decision maker and progress in your technical ability and SUP proficiency.
