Sheltered Water Award

This award from Paddle UK (formerly British Canoeing) is designed to develop your understanding of how to plan and paddle a Stand Up Paddleboard in sheltered water, using the appropriate abilities and decision making skills to travel safely on your pre-determined route.

Location – Oulton Broad

The southern most point of the Broads National Park is the perfect location with a combination of slow moving rivers and a large expanse of open water.

We may choose other locations close by depending on the group members experience and the weather conditions.

This is a two day course where you get to take control of your learning. There is no formal assessment during the course.

Cost – £195

Further Information

Your SUP Sheltered Water Award will give you the ability to organise and carry out an enjoyable and safe trip on the water up to 200 metres from shore, up to force 3 in winds.

You will be confident in considering how far you can safely travel from the shore, whilst identifying safe exit points, expanding your knowledge of rescue techniques and looking at the external and environmental factors which may affect our journey.

You will create proficient skills to anticipate and adapt to problems we may encounter to enable us to have a safe and enjoyable day out stand up paddleboarding.
