Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) is the fastest growing segment of paddlesports! Not only is it an accessible way to get on the water and enjoy being outside, but it’s also a great workout (when you know proper paddling technique). Anna is an American Canoe Association SUP Instructor Trainer, and her 20 + years of paddling experience combined with her popular teaching style makes Anna’s L1 and L2 SUP Instructor Courses effective and fun. Anna is also proud to be a BIC SUP ambassador.
Skills you’ll learn in this class include group management on flatwater and in mild conditions, teaching methods, trip leading methods, safety and how to teach the forward stroke, sweep strokes, pivot turns, moving around on the board, different stances, draw to the nose and more!
PLEASE NOTE: These are not a skills course! These courses are an opportunity to refine your skills so please show up with a proficiency in the skills outlined in the ACA course curriculums for L1 and L2 and be ready to learn to teach these skills.
