Check out the ‘shunt’ – a very simple yet effective technique for moving another paddleboard along. Maybe one of your group is fatigued or not feeling great, or has lost their paddle etc – knowing a quick-n-dirty technique like this can be a lot quicker and less hassle than going through the full rigmarole of taking them under tow. This is just one of many cool tricks you’ll learn in our free SUP RESCUE course – check it out at www.supinstructors.nz/ See MoreSee Less

Give it a try, you'll be astonished at how easy and effective it is! Definitely best done on inflatable boards, and obviously not a technique for challenging conditions, but super effective in more clement conditions. (Particularly great if you're out for a family paddle and junior is flagging a bit!). But there is no one 'right' rescue technique for every single scenario – having a variety of tricks up your sleeve is always the best plan.

The drowning toll in NZ this summer has been horrific. Fortunately, no paddleboarders are featuring in the stats so far – let’s keep it that way, people. Check out our latest safety vid, and share it to your friends and whanau. It’s super easy to be safe while you’re out paddling, and it really doesn’t need to interfere with your fun or stoke at all.

For much more info on SUP safety check out the safety pages on our website, but if you follow the 5 simple rules of the SUP SAFE code you won’t go far wrong
