Because there's a lot more to do in Singapore than you think!

Lesson Overview

The basic ” SUP 101″ class, where all the basics are covered does not require any specific water sport experience except for being able to swim at least 50 meters comfortably. We will teach you: Equipment Overview, Safety and Awareness of the conditions, Balancing, Correct Stance, Steering and Turning, Proper paddling form and more. We recommend 1 hour class to start with, and some practice before the 2nd hour class. Paddle boarding has a much shorter learning curve than other board sports and many people can become quite proficient at the basics in a short period of time.  We provide the board, paddle, life vest and leg rope (/ leash). We suggest you bring: towel, sunscreen and water, get ready to have some fun.
