SUP School

Our SUP school caters to entry level paddlers wanting to learn the basics of stand-up paddle boarding including safety awareness on the water. We are all about having fun in a safe environment on our beautiful Swan River. Garvey Park, Ascot is a relatively protected section of the swan river offering a peaceful environment to learn stand up paddle boarding. It is also home to the largest Kayak Club in Australia and boasts abundant bird life, Ron Courtney Island and well facilitated park perfect for family picnics and special occasions.  

Our fully accredited instructors will ensure you feel at ease on the water and will take you through the basic techniques of stand up paddle boarding focusing on safety, explaining weather conditions and equally important, having fun! At the end of the 1 hour group lesson you will have 30 minutes optional free paddling time to practice what you’ve learnt.

  • Sun protective clothing (rashie)

Class times


On each Friday we will be running twilight beginners classes structured to develop confidence and hone in on the basic techniques of paddling and water safety.

Garvey Park is a beautiful reserve and offers the perfect location to learn Stand Up Paddle boarding. If you are not yet confident to venture out on your own in the open river or ocean this class will be ideal to build up your confidence with other paddlers at the same level.

We will cover basic paddling techniques, safety on the water, wind conditions, and enjoy a cruise around the little Ron Courtney Island where we can chat about all things SUP.

Classes are scheduled for each Friday late afternoons from 4.30 pm – 6.00 pm. It’s a great way to finish off the working week.

Coffee and snacks are available at the kiosk during the day or bring morning tea or supper to finish off in the magnificent Garvey Park Reserve!
