Open Water SUP Training

Open Water SUP Training Class

Stand Up Paddleboarding is one of the fastest growing sports in the world and has seen a vast increase in popularity in Northern Ireland since we started teaching the sport in 2012. We believe it is important to always learn skills and techniques in a safe environment and so we always recommend an enclosed water way such as a river or lake.

In Northern Ireland we are blessed with the extremely scenic Causeway Coastline. This is a coastline filled with amazing journeys and ones which can be done by Stand Up Paddleboarding. At Long Line we have decided to offer a training class for anyone looking to widen their horizon in regards to what is possible on a SUP and train you to understand this new environment and how to stay safe while out in the ocean.

We will cover topics such as:

  • Paddle Techniques
  • Entering and exiting the water
  • Various Coastline Navigation
  • Wind Conditions
  • Emergency Action Plans

Location: Downhill Beach
