About the event
Our Paddleboarding Events UK Norfolk SUP weekend will is one not to be missed! The focus as with all of our retreats is to offer a friendly introduction to more advanced SUP disciplines for our paddlers. We often give people their first experiences on the sea. This weekend will focus on SUP surf whereever possible but if the surf gods are not with us then we shall ammend the pracitcal to another suitable Paddleboard activity such as surf skills, Down Winding or similar. This time we have included a relaxing SUP tour to end the holiday on!
This course is ideal for those who can paddle comfortably on flat water and are able to fully control a board. Day one will prepare you for the open water with some board handling and agility skills and day two will be putting it all into practice amongst the waves. This course is a combination of theory on the land but with lots of practical included too. In addition to the SUP Surf element, we've teamed up with Sauna Box HQ to provide a wild sauna experience to warm you up after hitting the surf.

These saunas are wood fired, reaching temperatures over 85 degrees celsius and completely off grid, providing the perfect wild sauna experience
