Frequently Asked Questions

What insurance / qualifications do the club / instructors have?

The club is RYA affiliated and sessions are run within RYA guidelines. This means instructors are qualified and any additional assistants / volunteers are under correct guidance and supervision.

Why do I need to join the club?

To run safe sessions with insurance and necessary welfare requirements, the club needs to ensure everyone is a club member. Benefits include:

  • Social SUP Group (more info)
  • Access to regular session
  • Equipment rental & lessons
  • Club Insurance
  • Your membership money supports the kids club… & the equipment, maintenance & insurance

Can I get a discount if joining part through the season?

Sorry, no. Our season starts in April through to end of next March and costs £20

What should I bring to a session?

  • Swimwear to wear under wetsuit (recommend to turn up with this under your normal clothes for easy changing)
  • Towel (dry robe or big towel, like this, is ideal to get changed in because we have no changing facilities)
  • Water (plenty!) / drink
  • Warm clothing
  • Suncream, camera, and a smile!
  • Medical items if required.

How do I rent kit?

If you are a member and pass our competency check, you can rent equipment outside club sessions for use anywhere (within reason!)

Can I book a private lesson?

We occasionally run ad-hoc adult tuition / lessons, these are priced on request. Get in touch!
