The second in our series of free education courses covering all aspects of SUP safety. In this course we focus on weather and water conditions. Understanding them is a vital aspect of SUP safety, as is knowing how to find out what is forecast.
Stand up paddleboarding may seem like a very safe sport , yet every year hundreds of paddleboarders end up getting into trouble, getting rescued – and tragically, sometimes the story does not end well. It almost always comes down to education – those paddlers getting into trouble were missing some critical knowledge. Hence this course. It will give you the knowledge that may well end up saving your life!
The course is completely free, and you can spend as long as you like working through the lessons. As you’ll see from the list of lessons below, all the information is broken down into bite-sized chunks so you can work through it at your leisure – or just pick out the bits you’re interested in. So – what are you waiting for? Let’s get started!
