How to become a Bartley SUP member?
For safety reasons, paddlers must follow the club membership guidance notes and meet the 'club paddler standard' before they are able to paddle unaccompanied.
To be self-sufficient when out on the water, you should be able to:
  • Paddle standing up in a straight line for 100 metres

  • Turn the board 360 degrees in both directions using two different techniques

  • Turn the board whilst moving

  • Increase and decrease paddle strength and rhythm over 100 metres

  • Paddle upwind, downwind and crosswind in a light breeze.

  • Prone paddle (self-rescue) & demonstrate getting back on your board from the water 

If you want to join Bartley SUP but have no previous experience, do not worry, our instructors can help you on your way to meet the 'Club Paddler' standard and develop your personal paddling skills. Hit the "Become a member "button below
