SUP Lessons

Group or Private Lessons Available on the Gold Coast

The first thing you must know about stand up paddle boarding on the Gold Coast is that it’s super easy to learn with instruction from our fully accredited Go Vertical SUP coaches, showing you “how to” and being with you every step of the way.
In the private lesson you get to learn a lot more about paddle technique advance turns and stances, to generally improve your strength of paddle technique and balance. You will advance a lot quicker in a Private lesson under the gentle guidance of our professional instructor.

Private lessons allow us to cater to your requirements depending on your fitness level so we can go at your pace. The lesson is a full hour so there’s plenty of time to tweak your paddle technique and for you to ask questions and to gain more information on paddling. Immediately after your lesson you have half an hour (free) board hire to practice your skills and the opportunity to ask a few more questions afterwards.
