Our SUP: Fundamentals! class is for those who have never taken a Stand Up Paddleboard lesson. We teach balance and basic paddling strokes and skills, how to load and transport a SUP, applicable Coast Guard regulations, along with gear and water knowledge. Even if you have been on a paddleboard before, you will be surprised by how much you learn in this fundamental course!
You will leave the SUP: Fundamentals! class with the necessary knowledge to SUP on calm water (lakes and estuaries), whether for fun or fitness training. You will receive your Paddle Canada Basic SUP skills certificate.

There is no refund if you cancel for any reason within 7 days (14 days for multi-day courses) of the course.
Courses go rain or shine. Here in Alberta we can have rain, snow, blistering heat or high winds - sometimes on the same day. Don't believe weather forecasts; dress for varying weather conditions. If you need help, our store staff can give you great advice!
