This workshop allows you to gain the key skills to give you the confidence to be prepared for your next SUP adventure.

The course is delivered by Sian, a WSA trainer and ambassador.  

Sian is a great instructor, I learn’t lots! We were well looked after and had a lot of fun. I’d highly recommend the workshop. The skills gain were incredible.
