Beginner Course – Learn how to SUP in Central Oslo – Bjørvika
Stand up paddling is the fastest growing adult watersport in the world – and here’s why! SUP’s are easily packed down and transported meaning that you can store one in your apartment and take in on the public when you want to hit the water.
Stand up paddling is also very easy to learn and suits a wide range of ages and fitness levels. When SUP boarding you can either stand up and paddling, using all the muscles in your body and improving your balance, or sit/lay down and just relax. This combination of exercise and finding peace while out in nature is why we think SUP’s are so cool!
On our 2hr SUP course, you will be taught all the basic paddle techniques to control your board. You will also learn how to balance, getting back on your board, about equipment and safety.

Age limit: 14yrs+
Fitness: Low – medium.
(Please bring woollen underwear to wear under our wetsuits if it is a cold/rainy day).
Beginner; no experience required.
The SUP course starts with training on land – it often feels safest to start with firm ground under you. Still, you will soon be required to venture out onto the water. Then you will learn how to lift, carry and launch yourself safely onto the water. Once all the students are ready, the real SUP lesson begins. This includes:
- How to get back on your board
- Paddle strokes and board control
- Self and buddy rescue
- Safety on the water; boat traffic and weather conditions.
All paddle clothing (wetsuit, shoes, gloves, hat, paddle and SUP) is included on this course. We advise you to bring wool underwear, and a towel so that you stay warm and happy. Remember to bring a water bottle, sunscreen and sunglasses if it is a hot day!
Do you want to be even safer and more skilled on the water? Then you can book a private lesson with our pro instructors to take you to the next level – just get in touch!

Utrolig gøy opplevelse å padle kajakk ned Akerselven. Proffe og flinke instruktører. Anbefales på det varmeste.
Jeg fikk Padletur på Akerselva til bursdag av kjæresten min. Helt super opplevelse. Anbefales!
Sønnen min på 13, hans onkel på besøk fra utlandet og jeg hadde en fantastisk tur ned Akerselva fra Grunerparken ved Mathallen og ut til Operaen. En god opplevelse og en annen måte å oppleve Akerselva og padling på. Anbefales varmt!! MadGoats er gode på det de gjør 🙂
