Event description

Description

Let's SUP ladies. Stand Up Paddle Boarding is easy, great for core strength and yet so relaxing!

Meeting in New Norfolk we start the day with a short 30 minute easy walk from the lower jetty/boat ramp through Tynwald Park before meeting our instructor Cameron on the Esplande outside the caravan park. After some safety instruction we'll spend an hour and a half developing our skills, feeling balanced and gliding gently down the slow flowing sections of the River Derwent and through the cliffs of New Norfolk!

Only 8 spots available. Bring along some friends or come and meet some amazing ladies!

FAQ

Is stand up paddle boarding (SUP) something I can do?

Most people can—and they love it! It is relatively easy to learn...most pick up the basics the first day of learning. Still a bit of a secret...all ages and skills levels can participate.

How long will SUP take to learn?

It’s not uncommon for first-time paddlers to stand up and paddle within 20 minutes. The ease of learning this sport attracts a wide range of ages from the very young to the very mature, and a wide range of skills from novice to seasoned athlete. Paddlers can begin on their knees before transitioning to standing.

What are the benefits of stand up paddle boarding?

The benefits are enormous!

  • • It’s an all-ages, all-level activity.
  • • It’s a great core fitness and full body workout
  • • SUP can be therapeutic and calming or exciting and exhilarating
  • • Fresh air and exercise in the great outdoors is good for body, mind, and spirit.

Why is a person’s weight a factor?

You want a board that keeps you on top of the water for optimum paddling efficiency. The boards we will be using can accommodate up to 120kgs.

Do I need to be able to swim?

Some swimming is preferrable. You will be wearing life-jacket and close supervision if your not a confident swimmer :)

Please note that this is a women's only activity however Cameron from Derwent Valley SUP tours will be instructing us for the day.

Will trip still run if weather is bad?

The only time that lessons will be cancelled will be due to extreme weather conditions including lightning storms or if it's very windy/heavy rain. NOTE: You will be contacted via phone the morning before the tour if we will cancel the trip.
