The SHACs SUP Academy

Welcome to The SHAC SUP Academy 

New for 2019.


Here at The SHAC we are committed to developing the sport of stand up paddle boarding with a younger audience and growing our Junior Race Squad for 2019. 

The Academy has been created to give younger paddlers in Surrey of 8 years old and over the opportunity to learn more about the different disciplines and skills required for SUP Racing (Sprint, Distance and Technical) 


The Academy is not all about racing but more about enjoyment and self development whilst getting young people out in the elements and enjoying all the benefits that offers. SUP is a fantastic sport for all round fitness, core strength and mental well being.  


We are running 6 weekly sessions during the school term time on Wednesday evenings.  The SHAC supply the coaching and the SUP equipment (board, paddle and leash) to get you started.


(Please have your own wet-suit available for colder days and arrive ready to paddle - Wet Suits available to hire or purchase from us if required)


The Sessions are limited to 12 students per session in order to get the best possible results. Each 6 week course costs £89.00 + VAT.
