Here at the Glide Surf School we offer a variety of either GROUP or PRIVATE SUP (stand up paddle boarding) lessons to suit the complete beginner through to the intermediate and more proficient paddler.
We take delight in providing lessons of the highest standard ensuring you will always be learning, improving and excited about stand up paddle boarding whatever your level. We start our stand up paddle boarding at 13 yrs+ in the sea. However, we can accommodate participants as young as 8 years old for private 1:1 lessons as well at our inland private lake. Your safety is of top priority so all of our lesson will include water and beach safety education as well as how to manage the current sea conditions on the day of your lesson. All our instructors hold a level 1 SURF & SUP coaching award, an SLSGB beach lifeguard award as well as being experienced and passionate surfers, paddle boarders and watermen. Please see our booking page to see what happens when the conditions are not suitable to SUP.
