SUP Touring Rollout September 21- 23 ($500+gst)
SUP Surfing Rollout September 24 -25 ($350+gst)
Registration Deadline: August 15
The Rollout programs goal is to ‘jump start’ a number of instructor-trainers and instructors in Atlantic Canada so that the program can grow organically from there. We are shortening the length of the certification process for these original ITs and instructors, but we are not lowering the standards in any way! We accommodate the shorter time frame by inviting pre-screened candidates. In 2014, the SUP committee developed and released the new and much improved Surf and Touring programs. Each has two skill levels, two instructor levels and two instructor-trainer levels. September 21-23 will be the Touring SUP program. Immediately following that is the Surf SUP program on September 24-25. Individuals may choose to attend one or both, based on their goals and experience. Your goals may be to achieve the instructor certification or instructor-trainer certification – each is available based on performance.
Who can participate?
Existing Paddle Canada SUP Advanced Flatwater instructors who also have experience surfing and/or SUP Touring can apply to participate in the Rollout. SUP instructors from other certifying bodies or equivalent experience may be considered, based on the fullness of their paddling and instructor resume.
