Over 60’s SUP Lessons

Over 60’s Stand Up Paddle Lesson – bought to you by the GCCC Active & Healthy Program… and it’s FREE!! 

What’s the catch I hear you ask??… Yes there is a catch…. you have to book in and come along!! Ok well we do have an agenda too and that is to get all Gold Coasters outdoors to enjoy our wonderful waterways to enhance fitness and health for all ages. So the GCCC has subsidised us to make it more affordable to you.. thats another bonus!! First you get outdoors, then you meet people and socialise, then you get fit by movement however little and then you become a confidant paddler… and its free!! its all too easy!!

Paddling is fun!!

Paddling is fun!!

Now for some stats…..

  • My Mum paddles and she is 76… our most elderly paddler was a chap from NZ who is 85 years young and paddles twice a week…. so you have no excuses but to get out, get fit and have fun for free!!
  • Stand up paddle (SUP for short) is easy to learn
  • We teach you SUP in shallow water
  • SUP is fun and safe
  • SUP is addictive
  • SUP is both social and a fitness regime- you get to choose!
  • You burn more calories paddling than you do walking
  • You can tone the body with passive exercise that SUP creates
  • At our location at Budds Beach in Surfers Paradise there is yummy coffee to rejuvenate after paddling
  • We see a lot of fish and birdlife whilst paddling, sometimes dolphins
  • It is fun for all ages
  • Men & Women over the young age of 60 are competing in SUP races all over the world

All you need to do is call us and book in.. leave us a contact number so we can call you if anything changes as we are weather dependant and thats all .. then just turn up at Bumbles Cafe on the 1st Wednesday of every month and we will get you started on your SUP adventure!

The plan is to get you all at a level where we can then plan a “Weekly Paddle Group” and create some fun friends and memories and get fitter and more adept at paddle technique and turns.
