We believe that when kids fall in love with an outdoor sport, they fall in love with the outdoors. And kids who love their planet become ambassadors for taking care of it.

 

SUPKids program

We run this programme every second weekend of the school term. It is a two-day overnight commitment, roughly 09:00 Saturday - 15:00 Sunday with two staff (male and female).

The SUPKids program is designed to teach kids SUP, water safety & environmental education. We know what it’s like to fall in love with being in the ocean. And we know that, with a passion for SUP comes a responsibility to take care of our environment. Our vision is to create experiences for our SUPKids that will enhance their appreciation, respect & understanding for sustainable living.

Our program is run in an inclusive, non-competitive environment with a real focus on building self-esteem. We use games, drills & SUP activities to ensure that our SUPKids walk away with vital water safety skills that will stay with them for life. We’ve taken environmental education out of the classroom, to the great outdoors, where we think it belongs.

 

How SUPKids works

Our SUPKids Schools teach our programs in the ocean, on lakes, in rivers and in safe waterways in all sorts of awesome locations. The program has been developed for youth aged 5-19.

We offer more then just SUP lessons, SUPKids combines SUP with environmental education & water safety. We want to connect kids with nature & empower them to take care of our planet.

And beyond...

Just because the 'official' SUPKids lessons stop at five, doesn't mean the learning, mastery and discoveries stop too. Social Nature Movement always take participants as far as they can go, not as far as we think they should go. So, if they have a passion project, an environmental inkling or simply love it so much, SNM are the ones to help that insatiable mind!
