Are you looking to get into SUP surfing but don't know where to start? Or are you catching waves already but stuck with what to do next? Yes - well, this one is for you.
You will learn the techniques, skills and knowledge to confidently catch waves, be safe in the water and begin your surfing progression during our SUP Surf Camp.
So what will you learn?
Knowledge - Using forecasts, apps and reports to predict the best conditions, read the water, and understand the surf zone's hazards.
Equipment - Understand the basics of SUP surf equipment and how the right kit will help you progress quicker.
Different waves and breaks - how can you tell if it's a beach break? Are there rocks to avoid and understand why a particular wave is breaking as it is?
Techniques - How to catch and ride waves. What to do with the paddle, and how to start or progress your turns.
Skills - Position yourself to catch more waves. Get out back with confidence and teh basics of footwork to improve your surfing.
Do I need to be a skilled paddler?
The camp is aimed at beginners in SUP Surfing and intermediate paddlers who are already catching waves. It would be best if you were a competent paddler, but there is no need to have any surfing experience. For those already catching waves, we will set goals for you to push your paddling further and progress your turns and skills.
What about the location and accommodation?
Depending on the clinic, we will typically look at North Devon (Croyde) or Cornwall (Newquay). Our SUP Surf camps start at 9 - 9:30 am on both days, but a full schedule will be sent to you before arrival. Accommodation local to the camp will be recommended on the individual event description.
SUP Surf Camp Options
Beginner - Set the foundations for catching waves and start your progression by making your first turns. Our Beginner SUP Surf Camp aims to ensure you have the Techniques, Skills and knowledge to head out to the waves again in confidence.
Progression - If you are already catching waves and now want to push your skills, then our Progression SUP Surf Camp is for you. Here you will learn to position yourself better, pick the best waves and understand the techniques for riding and progressing on your front and back sides along a wave.

Recommended Kit List
Here is our recommended kit list for the weekend.
