Stand Up Paddleboarding Lessons

Stand Up Paddleboarding is one of the fastest growing watersports in the world. Cape Town is one of the best locations to discover this new exhilarating experience.


Stand Up Paddleboarding is a social sport and great to do with family, friends or even to discover by yourself – no one need be left out.

This is the perfect introduction to learn how to stand up paddleboard. You will learn about hazards, self-rescue, posture, balance and equipment. You will become familiar with the board and the basic paddle techniques.

Next you will learn how to Stand Up Paddleboard, first lying on your board and then kneel paddling before learning how to stand up. The lesson is jam packed with useful tips and techniques so you quickly gain confidence.

We aim for people of every ability – athletic or not, young or old – to enjoy our Stand Up Paddleboarding lessons. SUPing is a great workout and you will have a lot of fun while doing it. We guarantee you will be paddling by the end of your very first lesson!

We have a variety of Stand Up Paddleboarding experiences available. The best way to really get to grips with this exciting activity is to enrol in our 3-Session SUP Special. This course will introduce you to SUP on your first lesson and refine your technique in lesson two using the latest coaching techniques – plus offer you the opportunity to try out different kit. In the 3rd session we take you on a SUP tour. For those who wish to discover the thrill of SUP downwinding or SUP surfing, we also specialise in these areas.
