British Canoeing Awarding Body launch the NEW SUP Safer Course

The NEW SUP Safer course is now available!

British Canoeing Awarding Body has today launched the NEW SUP Safer course which is designed for anyone new or relatively novice to Stand Up Paddleboarding, wanting to gain knowledge and raise their awareness of their personal safety.

The 4-hour programme is delivered within a sheltered water environment where participants will explore in a fun, and educational engaging way.

The SUP Safer course is based on the British Canoeing Awarding Body Educational Philosophy and, as such, the ethos of ‘supporting the paddler’ is the main focus of the course, encouraging individuals to consider where they paddle, the equipment they use, planning their trips and providing practical solutions if they get into difficulty on the water.

The course is suitable for all ages and great for individuals, families and groups wanting to expand their SUP safety practices when on the water.

As part of our work in providing educational resources and programmes for paddlers, British Canoeing Awarding Body has developed a SUP Safer course aimed at supporting those new or relatively new to Stand Up Paddleboarding. The practical four-hour programme is designed to raise awareness of the inherent risks, and providing safety frameworks so they can enjoy their time on the water.
