As a final chapter to this SUP SAFE Safety Equipment education course, we plug our new-found knowledge into the SUP SAFE code, a handy and effective way of wrapping all your safety planning up into one simple 5 point plan.
If you’ve completed any of the other SUP SAFE courses then you will already have encountered the SUP SAFE code.
Leashes, PFDs and communications all feature heavily in the SUP SAFE code, and PPE also features in rule 3; being properly attired for the conditions. This really underlines the message about just how fundamental the knowledge in this course is, when it comes to SUP safety.
If you’ve not yet completed the SUP SAFE Understanding the Conditions course, then we’d strongly recommend taking that course next. You will learn a lot more very valuable safety information and advice.
Congratulations – you’ve completed the course. We hope you’ve found it both interesting and useful, and now have a much better understanding of what leash, PFD, comms and clothing configurations you need to be safe on the water. If you want to test your knowledge, do try the quizzes at the end of the course.
If you’ve found this course useful, then we’d strongly recommend checking out our other free SUP SAFE courses. Lots more super-relevant information, wisdom and knowledge which may just save your life.
Please feel free to leave feedback and a course rating, and if you have enjoyed the course then please tell your friends. The more safety knowledge there is on the water, the safer we all are as a community. As we discuss at the beginning of the course, SUP seems like such a safe sport. Yet every season, people get into difficulties and sometimes the story doesn’t have a happy ending. And almost invariably, it comes down to lack of knowledge…
Happy paddling, and SUP safe!
