Why have lessons?
Getting paddling on a SUP board is relatively easy, but like most sports, the important thing is to get started with the right technique.
Good quality lessons will ensure that you learn on the right equipment for your skill level and get used to the correct stroke technique. This avoids injuries further down the track and means that you progress rapidly to the next level so that you’ll get maximum enjoyment out of the sport.

New to Stand Up Paddle Perth are the SUP Yoga lessons. This is a surprisingly fantastic way to enjoy the benefits of yoga with the water, fresh air and rocking motion providing a calming effect.
With SUP Yoga the board becomes a floating yoga mat and provides extra benefits as your core is working harder to keep your body stable. For yoga practitioners, SUP Yoga is great way to add a new dimension to your regular yoga sessions and will challenge you in a new way.
If you don’t have your own board, there are limited boards that can be rented for the SUP Yoga sessions with prior notice.
Stand Up Paddle Perth is located at 29 Rosslare Promenade in Mindarie.
