UNDERSTANDING YOUR LEVEL

Coast to Coast have offered paddle boarding since 2011 in Dunbar and East Lothian. Different locations can provide new challenges for Stand Up Paddlers and we specialise in coastal conditions. Our programs cover everything from a super fun introduction, to exploring the coastline and dealing with swell and wind, through to technical stroke improvement. We recommend progressing through the levels, however it is possible to progress from level 1 or 2 to a SUP Tour (3) if you have decent paddle skills.

 

SUP  BEGINNER (LEVEL 1)

New to the sport this level is for you!

Our introductory fun classes run in flat water on the coast. They cover the basics of controlling your board lying down, kneeling, standing and an introduction to safety and equipment.

AVAILABILITY : DAILY CLASSES 

 

 

SUP SKILL BUILDER (LEVEL 2)

An introduction to exposed coastal environment and the skills and safety needed to deal with conditions in the sea. Normally these classes take place on the dunbar coast or around the surf centre at Belhaven.

This level looks at safely, self rescue and adapting paddling and balancing technique to conditions. It also includes how to deal with small surf, chop and wind at sea.

AVAILABILITY :  WEEKLY CLASSES

 

SUP TOUR OR UNIQUE PADDLES (LEVEL 2)

The same level as the sup skill builder but just learning skills to explore the coastline in Dunbar, East Lothian or the Borders.

At this stage we introduce route planning and safety technique on the water. These paddles offer an excellent opportunity to be social and learn new skills while having fun!
