    The Family Stand up paddle board lesson in St Ives or Penzance Cornwall is a fun way for families with children from the age of 6 years old to learn how stand up paddle board under professional instruction in a very safe and controlled environment. The Lesson is based over 1.5 hours purely because of the young guns getting cold or the attention span waivering.
    With families I like to keep it as a private lesson as with others it can change the dynamics plus it allows me to be totally flexible to you guys. During your lesson i start with an introduction to paddle boarding which also allows me to assess how your children are in the water. I am very keen for the young`uns to have their own board as soon as possible so i have safety buoys in place which makes it easier for everybody. Once we have all stood up and enjoyed a great paddling session I introduce fun games for all the family to enjoy and is an ideal time for a family photograph.


    Julius is a professional and intuitive level 2 BSUPA instructor with an amiable personality perfect for teaching families to stand up paddle board. The family SUP lesson is all about having fun on the water whilst introducing both the technical and practical sides of stand up paddleboarding so that after each session the guys not only enjoy the lesson but come away with better water skills and a progression towards a BSUPA level 1 certificate.
    We have the best location to teach you as is sheltered from the wind, enclosed from any other boats or water activities ensuring total safety at all times and is pretty much flat as. If you book this lesson as a family JB ensures it is private to you for a better all round experience and of course special family time guaranteed :o) Please note that adults must part take or be present during this lesson.
