Student SUP Taster Session At Durham Amateur Rowing Club

It’s always great to teach paddle boarding on the River Wear as it definitely produces the best results for beginners, offering almost perfect flat water for our clients’ first attempts. Our student SUP taster sessions allow cash-strapped students the opportunity to give stand up paddle boarding a go without breaking the bank!

We recently had a group of medical students keen to give SUP a try at Durham Amateur Rowing Club. After some initial ‘small steps’ everyone was up and paddling in about 15-20 minutes with some of the girls cracking out tail sink turns, crossbow turns and even some freestyle on the return journey up through the city.

We were even schooled in some SUP Yoga with a couple of girls showing off their balancing skills. Even Joe was impressed with the speed of progress with this group and looks forward to seeing them for their first attempts at paddle surfing in Seaburn or Blyth.
