SUP Instructor Certification Courses with PSUPA in Seattle 2017

If you're interested in becoming a certified SUP instructor, I'm offering monthly PSUPA (Professional Stand Up Paddle Association) courses in Seattle from Feb to June 2017.  The Flat Water 1 course is 3 days and will cover how to teach paddling, SUP business skills, risk management, rescues and we'll refine your paddling technique. You will also receive our 105 page teaching manual.

Cost / Details: The course is $499 per person. Add $45 a day for rental gear (board, paddle, leash, PFD, wetsuit, booties, hood).  You'll also need to join the PSUPA as a member, which is $65 a year. Prior to class we require you have a current First Aid / CPR certificate.

Who is this course for?
Experienced stand up paddlers who have been paddling for a few years who have solid skills on flat water and can handle wind, small waves and related rough water. You should be comfortable falling off your board and getting on.  If you feel you need more  experience, we offer year around basic paddling courses.
