SUP Courses at Kitekollektivet

Stand Up Paddle (SUP) is an older form of surfing that originated in Hawaii in the 60s. Today, it is one of the fastest growing sports due to its versatility. It can be practiced in big waves, on flat water and on rivers. In other words, everyone can participate regardless of temperament and physical fitness - SUP courses are for everyone!

SUP on calm coasts, in harbors and lakes is relatively easy to learn - most people can become familiar with the activity after one hour of instruction. You'll quickly learn to balance on the board - even in wind and waves. You'll learn to paddle efficiently enough to handle currents and headwinds, and to make turns. Without you even realizing it, you'll be getting plenty of movement and strengthening your body and balance.

If you like beautiful and quiet nature or a good workout with or without waves, SUP is for you! It is also a great activity with family, friends or colleagues. Check out our range of SUP courses below - it's fun and easy to get started!

FAQs

SUP is a great sport to practice both alone and with others. The only requirement to join is that you can swim a minimum of 200 meters.

We teach SUP at Sydvestpynten in Dragør, Copenhagen. 

Sydvestpynten is known for good conditions, where you can bottom up to 100/200 meters out. There is a sandy bottom and very few rocks.

On all our SUP courses all necessary equipment is included. Therefore, all you need to bring is a bottle of water, swimwear, towel and sunscreen. You can also bring a hat and/or sunglasses if needed.

There are changing rooms, showers and toilets at the Surf Center.

If you have little or no experience with SUP, we always recommend taking a SUP course. Before you go out on the water on your own, you should be able to do the following:

  • You must be able to keep your balance on the board even on smaller waves
  • You should be able to paddle into a headwind without problems
  • You must be able to get on the board in deep water
  • You need to know about safe weather conditions for SUP
  • You must be able to take 100% responsibility for yourself and your equipment
  • You need to know what to do if you drift away from the shore
  • You need to know how to do a power turn

When you are on a course at Kitekollektivet, our insurance covers third parties in case you are unfortunate enough to hit others with the equipment. 

Unfortunately, our insurance does not cover you and it is therefore important that you check if you have an insurance that covers you in case of injury/accident. We are very safety conscious, but recommend that you check with your insurance before you go on a course.

You must provide your own transportation to our Surfcenter. All wing surf lessons take place at Sydvestpynten close to the Surfcenter, where there is both good parking conditions and you can easily take the bus to.

 

Our good cooperation with Kitesport.nu means that we can offer good prices and offers to all our members. Write an email to kontakt@kitekollektivet.dk with your needs.
