"Skills. Experience. Guiding. That’s what it takes to get people out on the water, help them learn and improve their skills, ensure that they find success...”.
If you can’t make it to an instructor course then apprenticing may be an option for you. If you are committed to becoming the best instructor possible, want to get some real on-water teaching experience, and work under the tutelage of an Instructor Trainer then this is definitely the track for you!
If you have completed one of our Core SUP skills programs, or have equivalent training and are at home on your board.
Please note that the course does not include any personal clothing or gear, food, or travel – please see our Gear and Clothing tab.
Course Cancellation: It is rare that we cancel a session due to weather considerations however we will do so if, in our judgement, the conditions are dangerous or are likely to present a poor learning environment.
After application and acceptance:
Candidates must prepare in advance both written and oral presentations, deliver on-water teaching sessions, complete a written skills course outline and complete a written test.
Detailed course outlines and teaching assignments will be distributed prior to the beginning of the course to allow candidates appropriate preparation time.Attention: Although we do our best to work through all course content, please note that logistics, location, timing, itinerary or anything else, may be adjusted by your instructor to ensure group safety, comfort and success, over the duration of the course.
