Chichester SUP Club meets every Thursday evening in the warmer months, where we offer a reduced price hire of our Hatha paddleboards. Meeting at Hunston Pontoon, we paddle board to the canal basin and stop at the Richmond pub for a drink and chat, before paddling back. The social evenings are a great opportunity to meet other paddlers, gain confidence while paddle boarding with a group, improve your paddle board skills and try out different kit. Once the evenings start to draw in, we can experience the canal from a unique perspective with head torches and glow paddles.
When the weather permits, we run beach lessons for those who wish to progress their SUP skills. Beach sessions allow paddlers to experience more challenging conditions such as small waves, tides and wind conditions and also covers basic sea safety and risk assessment skills. Please check out our Facebook events page for details of upcoming beach sessions usually held at Bracklesham, Bognor and Felpham.
