  • Every SUPer must attend a SHAC Introduction to Sup Course before booking a Freeride session and before getting access to the big lake at Buckland. This can also be achieved by booking a private Family and Friends Intro to SUP Session or a Junior SUP Club course as appropriate.  This applies to everyone, even those with own boards. This ensures that you can self rescue before you embark on your SUP adventure with us.
