LEVEL 2 SUP SKILL BUILDER

This level is the next step for customers that have already done an introduction to paddle boarding in a flat water environment but want to try new environments. We offer the opportunity to learn new technical and organisational skills while exploring the impressive Dunbar coastline. These classes include improvements in paddle technique and introduction to the more open coastal environment where surf, swell or wind can add more challenges.

If wave conditions or winds are too wild for open water exploration, we will offer technical alternatives in enclosed protected coastal locations or inland to practice new technique, planning and safety skills.

Dunbar is a fantastic SUP location with amazing variety of geology, historic castles, harbour and lots of friendly wildlife – a great place to paddle and explore!

Availability : SUP skill builder classes takes place April to October.
