Full description

Come and try SUP, the water sport of the moment! The acronym stands for Stand Up Paddle and consists of moving through the water while standing on a board and using a paddle to move forward and steer the motion.

A one-hour basic lesson is the best way to get acquainted with the board and learn the basics of this sport, and you will do so in the calm waters of the Lidi Ferraresi, between the Po Delta and the Adriatic coast.

You will be supervised by experienced instructors who will enable you to steer the paddle independently from the very first lesson and will adapt the teaching whatever your level. Whether you are new to SUP or have already had some practice elsewhere and want to improve your technique, you are always welcome!

What we will do

The meeting point will be at the SUP school in Lido di Volano (FE), directly on the beach. You can be alone or in a small group of a maximum of 4 participants, so that the instructor can follow everyone thoroughly. Our instructors are all competitive athletes in possession of teaching certifications. Who better than them to make you love this discipline? Like all board sports, SUP is characterised by anatmosphere of relaxation, fun and friendship that we can't wait for you to try!

You will start with a theory part and a series of exercises on land. In this phase you will learn how to hold the correct position, grip the paddle in the right way and move it in the most efficient way so as not to strain your arms too much. Still on land, you will get on the board to start getting in tune with it. We will use boards suitable for beginners, which are wider than standard boards and provide more stability and control.

Then we will enter the water to paddle for real. We will be tied to the SUP using a special cable that we will tie around our ankle, so that in the event of a fall we won't stray too far from the board and can immediately grab onto it to get back up. Following the instructor, we will do progression exercises and move freely in the sea, gradually acquiring a certain autonomy.

The activity lasts an hour.
