Welcome to the sup boarding school in Lagos
Stand up paddle surfing – is a popular in the world and only gaining momentum with us, the kind of water sports that has come from classic surfing. SUP has become an indispensable friend to surfers in the absence of waves, since you can surf on absolutely smooth water using an paddle.
You do not need special training and, do not even have to be able to swim. Even a child will cope with SUP in 5 minutes. Of course, to confidently stand on two legs or “kite” on the crest of the wave, you will need some time. But you can ride on your knees or sitting from the first minute. This is much easier than windsurfing, because on SUP you can ride not only in the absence of wind, but even against the current.
SUP boards in Lagos are reliable and safe
Surfboards with a paddle are of two types: stiff and inflatable.
Hard boards can be made of different materials: wood, fibreglass, epoxy, carbon mass, but all of them are different – the size always remains unchanged.
Because of this, hard boards are more difficult to store and transport, because they can not be “deflate” as inflatable, rolled into a tube and put in a backpack.
As for inflatable boards, they are also not as simple as one might think (this is not a “water mattress” for you).
Inflatable boards under a layer of heavy-duty composite shells contain a lot of vertical tubes, which give the board in the form of rigidity and strength.
Inflatable boards are slightly inferior to the hard ones in speed, but they can easily be moved in a bag, and besides inflatable boards are not threatened with chips and scratches.
Board construction and additional equipment
On the board itself, the nose and tail (stern) are distinguished, which can give the board different shapes (narrow, round, uneven, etc.).
The bottom of the board there are from one to three fins, they play the role of the stabilizer of the course stability and allow maneuvers.
Top of the board there is an anti-slip pad for the convenience of standing.
On the stern of the board there is a special fastening for the safety cord, it is also called leash. The cord isattached to the leg with a special cuff (velcro).
And it is needed to ensure that the board does not swim away from you, if suddenly you fall into the water (because the board is very light and the waves can quickly carry it away).
Also on some boards there are additional fastenings for personal things in the form of a grid or carbines, and a ring for towing (it is possible to “cling” to the boat).
Our school is located in a very attractive and beautiful location on the main beach of the old town of Lagos.
Clean beach with high cliffs, with colourful scenery, with crystal clear water and surface water and caves, you get a lot of pleasure from riding and training on sup board.
