Introduction to SUP


ASI is the world's leading stand up paddle accreditation and training organisation.

Paddle effectively and safely on enclosed flatwater locations! Our 2 hour intro to stand up paddle session provides you with the vital basics you will need...

2 Hour Course + ASI SUP Instructor + SUP Equipment
Stand up Paddle Initiation for Complete Beginners

Our 2 Hour Introduction to SUP Course is exactly that. Whether you are new to paddle boarding and want to get out there and give it a try or are even looking to purchase a stand up paddle board this is the perfect way to find out exactly what is right for you!

We take you through the basics of paddle boarding and introduce you to the safety aspects and local regulations regarding SUP, as well as give you some useful information regarding the different boards available on the market and their uses.

Once out in the water we take a short paddle out towards the point of the Cabo de Oro and back, getting used to the SUP and learning critical skills including self rescue, paddle strokes, turning strokes, and correct posture and technique.

This is a fun and informative SUP session with no pressure to perform but will give you a good taste for what stand up paddle boarding is about and what to expect on one of our ASI SUP Courses.

We meet at The Paddle Club, Moraira.
