SUP schools and coaching in New Zealand
If you’re looking for a SUP lesson or some coaching, we strongly recommend using an experienced and knowledgeable instructor wherever possible. While SUP is essentially a very safe sport, if it is not taught correctly using appropriate equipment, your experience is very likely to be less than pleasurable. There can be a world of difference between the teaching and safety practises of a professionally run paddleboarding school, and the ‘casual operator’ on a beach who has simply got themselves a couple of boards and has no formal training or qualifications whatsoever!
The following operators set out to deliver properly structured paddleboarding lessons and/or coaching on appropriate equipment, utilising proper safety practises.
Lessons, tours, groups, retail and rentals for all levels in the beautiful environs of the Bay of Islands.
