No previous paddling experience required. As part of the learning process getting wet and capsizing is possible, so come prepared for getting wet as well as a lot of fun and learning.

Learn basic paddling skills

We meet in our kayak center on Resarö island. We start with a little theory and gearing up to get ready to practice the basic skills on the water. After collecting equipment, we will show you how to adjust paddle length. After short safety briefing and taking a look on the map, we can jump on our SUP boards to paddle through calm, sheltered waters, perfect for first SUP tour. 

We will start with easy exercises to help you feel more confident on the board and to practice our stability. Total distance will be around 4 km and we'll adjust the route depending on the weather, especially wind direction.

* In case of very windy day there is a possibility to change SUP intro for kayak intro.

This SUP introduction training will cover information about: equipment, launching and landing, efficient forward stroke, stop and reverse paddling, turning the board, right position. You will learn how to carry SUP in a safety way. We will have also some fun in the water for those who want to practice rescue.
