About This Activity
This award is where you take the lead with support from myself. Your SUP Sheltered Water Award will give you a greater understanding of how to plan and paddle an enjoyable and safe trip on a paddleboard. And includes: getting ready, the venue, on the water, your SUP skills, after the journey & your future development. In order to have an enjoyable day out on the water we need to make some key decisions to ensure we are in the right place at the right time. You will consider the weather, wind and water conditions. As these, along with any waterway restrictions, may affect where and when we paddle. In addition, you will consider the personal protective equipment available and choose the most suitable to keep you safe on the water. This award will develop a range of skills and knowledge to get you safely through your journey. Balance and control of the board is important. You will learn the correct feet, body positioning and strokes required to keep you balanced. This can be whilst moving forwards or whilst steering the board. We will consider how you could adapt your plans if needed should conditions on the water change. You will also need to know how to rescue yourself or another paddler using a SUP should they, or you, get into difficulty. During the course you will look at the environmental factors to determine how far you can safely travel from shore. Whilst identifying safe exit points and expanding your knowledge of rescue techniques. It will give you the proficient skills to adapt to problems and enable you to have a safe and enjoyable day out on a paddleboard. At the end of your day, we will consider your future development. This will be tailored around you and your personal goals. You will consider ways in which you can gain more information to use in your post-trip assessment. And for thinking about next steps with the various discipline specific training courses available. Each day we spend SUP paddling we further expand our skills and knowledge. Steady gradual development is encouraged, which creates a more enjoyable experience on the water. With no two trips ever the same, we never stop learning, reflecting and evaluating. The SUP Sheltered Water Award has no formal assessment. This is a one day course - extensions & costings available. Equipment rental available. Includes a pre-online meeting (up to 40 mins) to discuss goals, motivations, areas you particularly want to focus upon and planning prep for when we meet.
