NZSUP photo

Wellington Ocean Sports recently hosted the ‘International Surfing Association Flat Water SUP Instructor course’ which three of our instructors completed.The course was an incredibly valuable, thorough course where instructor Bill Dawes took Wellington Ocean Sports instructors Holly Novis, Sam Price and Frankie Kebbell through venue safety analysis, paddle techniques, fault correction, beginner, intermediate and also more advanced lesson styles and skills.

They were also lucky to have a NZ Surf lifesaving component called the ‘Community Life Saving Award, which means our instructors are now certified and have the skills to rescue people using a paddle board. Check out how to recover an unconcious person with your SUP board.


Stand Up Paddle Boarding is a fantastic sport for anyone, and it’s a beautiful way to see Wellington city and harbour from the water. We run all year round, you can book a lesson with one of our friendly qualified instructors through our website at only $30 per person. No need for previous experience, and by having one of our experienced instructor’s show you the foundations will fast track your progress and ensure you learn the right techniques and safety skills. With no more than six people in each lesson ensures that you will get good coaching and meet some new people!

If you have your own board, by joining our ‘SUP Club’ you can store your board in one of our secure sheds right by the water for your convenience. This is also a great way to meet other paddlers.
