Beginner SUP Taster Lesson

SUP DUDE Mullaghmore Bundoran

This is the perfect introduction to learn how to stand up paddleboard. This lesson is intended as a ‘taster’ session to SUP where you will be shown the basics of stand up paddle boarding from an experienced and qualified surf instructor. It covers ocean safety, equipment overview, and proper paddle techniques. All techniques are first learnt on the beach and then in the water. Wetsuits, boards and paddle are included in all classes. The lesson is jam packed with useful tips and techniques so you quickly gain your confidence so no matter what your experience or level of fitness, you will be paddling your very first session.

  1. Important safety points regarding the beach, the water, and your equipment
  2. How to warm up properly
  3. Beach practice of techniques
  4. Board handling and launching

We’ll give you loads of help and technical tips both in and out of the water, as well as plenty of positive encouragement along the way.
