BSUPA Level 2 Courses

As an established and well respected BSUPA Approved School, we are delighted to bring you BSUPA Level 2 courses, 'Ready to Tour' and 'Ready to Race.' These are delivered by specially trained and experienced Level 2 BSUPA Instructors who have used the BSUPA Course Curriculum and tailored it for local delivery.

Ready to Race

Our BSUPA Level 2 'Ready to Race' courses are delivered by Anni Ridsdill Smith, an experienced SUP racer, BSUPA Level 2 Race instructor, BSUPA Director and committee member of GBSUP.  Don't worry if you don't own a SUP board or a race board.  We have plenty of boards that you can use on the course, including 12'6 and 14' carbon race boards.  

The course is suitable for anyone who has their BSUPA Level 1 ‘Ready to Ride’ certificate, is able to paddle with confidence and interested to learn the about racing.  The course includes classroom theory and kit overview and then an afternoon on the water practicing, trying kit and simulating some key race elements.  

If you get the race bug, then please join our non-selective Race Team for seasonal weekday evening training. Then come with us to the Club Championships at Bray Lake, on the last weekend of September each year, or to the brilliant GBSUP National Series races around the country.

Ready to Tour

Our 'Ready to Tour' course is split into two parts:

Theory. This is a 2hr evening classroom session in the Maldon Little Ship Club where we look at planning short SUP tours in a variety of locations. £25pp including course folder with materials and tea and coffee.

Practical. A Non-Tidal Paddle and a Tidal Paddle. Once you have completed your theory session, you need to look at our SUP Rider tour dates or our SUP Senoritas paddle dates (ladies) to find both a non-tidal and a tidal paddle and book yourself onto them.  

We will give you a tour plan to complete prior to each paddle. You will need to come to each paddle with a completed Tour Plan (which we will keep) and all of the necessary kit.  We will check your Tour Plan, your kit and your paddling during each paddle.  If you don't have your own SUP board, you can use ours.  The usual charges for our SUP Riders tours and SUP Senoritas paddles apply to these paddles.  

The course is suitable for all levels although you do need your BSUPA Level 1 Ready to Ride Certificate and be able to paddle with confidence.   Don't worry if you don't own a SUP board as we have plenty of boards that you can use on the course, including inflatable and hard touring boards.  Once the theory element and both a non-tidal and a tidal paddle are completed, we will issue you with a BSUPA Level 2 Certificate.
