School Groups

Christchurch Paddleboarding is the only NZ/ISA accredited Paddleboard school in the South Island. Your first choice when looking at paddleboarding sessions for your school group!

Stand up paddleboarding offers a whole new array of activities for youngsters: Exploring, cruising, racing, team-building, marine studies and lots more. So the goal of Christchurch Paddleboarding is to get kids excited about being outdoors and focused on learning this great new sport! With your group we will focus on young adult age-specific games and activities that will keep them engaged and looking for more.

Drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional injury or death [behind motor vehicle incidents] for the under-25 age group in New Zealand.


With this in mind we focus on safety first and then learning to paddleboard. It is the philosophy of the school that everyone learns about water safety and then the fundamentals of paddleboarding.

This begins with how to safely move around in the water and once the instructors are confident that these skills are in order we focus on the games and adventure side of the session.

Courtney from YMCA holiday programmes said: “The kids and staff loved the sessions, it was the highlight of their week. The staff all said they felt really safe, the progression was great, and the kids said it was great fun, so thanks heaps!”
