The ASI SUP Tour Guide course starts off at Dunbar East Lothian, a seaside town on the north sea coast.  It’s been dubbed ‘Sunny Dunny’ thanks to a reputation for the most hours of sunshine of any UK town 

The town and surrounding locations are steeped in history.  The SUP tour will take you along the dramatic coastline, castles, coves and islands, stunning countryside and a variety of sea and birdlife. 

You will begin with a morning session in the classroom, followed by a paddle along the coast to your overnight location. Set up camp and get the full wild camping experience. The next day will be a return to the training venue to put together everything you have learned and give you the opportunity to apply this to your very own guided SUP tour.
