Kids love stand up paddle boarding and that is why we encourage people to bring their children along for a SUP lesson. So what is our minimum participation age? Our minimum age is 8 years old and we have had plenty of 8 year olds come along for the experience. 8 is a tricky age as some kids are very capable and some kids struggle a little. The kids that struggle generally handle the paddling side of things OK but some find the distance we paddle to be a bit too much. This is fine as I carry a 10 foot leash with which I can tow any child that gets a little tired on our journey. I have attached a couple of pics of some kids enjoying a bit of a tow on the Merimbula Lake during a SUP session and to be totally honest it is great paddle training for me!
If you have any concerns or questions in regard to your child please don't hesitate to give me a call. I am always available for a chat.
