For those who have mastered the basics of standing up and want to progress their skills and technique, we can offer progression sessions to build confidence and ability. This can include paddle technique, mastering different ways of turning and moving around the board and paddling in different environments.

These sessions mostly take place on the Chichester Canal and during the summer months some will be on the sea. Check out our Eola booking page for details of upcoming sessions, or to enquire about your own private group booking.

Our progression sessions can include  a gentle transition from the generic 10 foot 6 all round boards, with our Hatha Stride paddle boards.  The Stride is a 13 foot inflatable tourer, that will allow the paddler to get used to the extra length and narrower width, the increased turning circle and the general handling of paddling a longer touring style board.

The next SUP we will introduce will be the 12 foot 6 SBS The Don . This tourer is a fantastic entry level board to progress from inflatable to hardboards. At just under 30″ wide, it provides a solid stable platform for perfecting that all important paddle stroke technique, along with improving our step back pivot turns. The Don is an awesome board for distance paddling, great for touring, fitness and ready to race.
